 "Coffee is life. I cannot live without coffee" So says Alemayehu Tilahun, the owner of the Butucha washing station in Gedeb. We wholeheartedly agree. Depending on the season, between 1950-2000 small holder farmers bring ripened cherry to be processed at Butucha. Cherries get depulped and fermented for 36 to 48 hours, washed with water from the nearby Moto river, and shade dried until the moisture has stabilized. The product of this hard work is a vibrant, sweetheart of a coffee. Rich notes of raspberry pastry dominate the cup, with a floral lemon verbena acidity to complement, rounding out with a sugary shortbread mouthfeel and finish. Please enjoy this coffee
