Carbon negative coffee



Near the south of Ethiopia, Tesi Huke is a washing station that creates its lots from hundreds of producers in the surrounding area. Although in Yirgacheffe, this coffee shares a lot of the same profile with the nearby Guji, striking a balance between that Yirgacheffe blueberry signature with the Guji’s big, sometimes tropical notes.

Processed using the natural method, where the coffee bean is left in the cherry and then dried in the sun, this lot is an incredible example of the Ethiopian natural with huge sweetness and a high-definition flavour profile.

Coffee originates from the land that is now modern day Ethiopia. Driving around the country, it’s obvious – coffee can even be found growing between the cracks in the pavement. Ethiopian coffee has long been known to be some of the most fruity and vibrant in the world. It can be incredibly hard to find, one reason being that the Ethiopian producers' approach to growing coffee involves growing it in small areas, usually under shade.

The cultivars grown in Ethiopia used to be called heirloom, which was a short-form way of saying “we aren’t sure.” This was an act of ignorance by the coffee roasting world, as it implied producers were not intentionally selecting coffee to create their delicious cups. Often, you’ll see cultivars labeled as Ethiopian Landraces to correct this ignorance, and more and more you’ll see names of specific cultivars like Kurume. This is a cultivar well known in Guji and Yirgacheffe, which creates a high-definition, fruit-forward cup.
