Choose whole bean for best results
Grade 1 Ethiopia Worka comes to us from the Worka Cooperative in West Arsi, Ethiopia. This coffee is grown at 2050-2200 meters above sea level.
This outstanding coffee has a candy like sweetness with strong notes of tangerine and tootsie roll and hints of fresh apricot and a clove-like spice.
Notes from our importer:
The Worka Cooperative in Worka operates the Halo Fafate Washing Station in Yirgacheffe, which serves around 900 smallholder farmers in the area. Coffee is typically grown on small garden-size plots and is used to supplement a family's income in addition to being grown for personal use. At this washing station, coffee is delivered in cherry form by producers, and it will be dried on raised beds.
West Arsi is a high-elevation area near the center of Ethiopia experiencing subtropical climates. The washing stations throughout West Arsi service hundreds of smallholder producers. The mixture of dark and red soil creates coffees that are very clean and elegant in profile.
What's the turnaround time for coffee orders?
Coffee is typically roasted on Mondays and shipped out the next day following QC. It is possible that your coffee is deemed fresh enough to ship if I have any roasted stock and shipped out soon after ordering. e.g. an order is placed on Thursday and I still have some of that coffee that was roasted on Monday, then I may be able to ship right away.
