Yirgacheffe, Danche / 2225 masl. / Wolisho and Dega / Red Honey / SCA - 87.00p


This coffee was produced by smallholder producers in the Worka Chelbesa village, and was processed at one the local wet mill operated by Negusse Debela. As an effort to continue improving their quality, Neguesse produces unique experimental lots, such as this Red Honey processed lot, which is technically not recognised in Ethiopia.
The area is known for its dense semi-forest vegetation, providing ideal conditions for shade-grown coffee.
Local farmers grow Wolisho and Dega variety coffee, which are landrace varieties from the Yirgacheffe region.

Cherries are manually harvested before being taken to the processing station where they are handsorted before being processed. The sorted cherries are then pulped and dried on raised beds, while still retaining their mucilage, until reaching their ideal humidity. The mucilage is then milled and the coffee is prepared for export.

Roast info

This coffee is roasted for espresso, meaning that it will present with higher intensity, rich texture and sweetness, lower acidity and more distinct caramelization flavours. Espresso roasts have higher solubility, meaning that you will be able to access the coffee flavours with more ease. Even though it is more suited for espresso machines and mokka pots, you can definitely enjoy it in any other method as well if you're looking for a richer cup. Espresso roasts are at their best starting from 2 weeks from the roast date, so take your time with it.

Use and storage

We recommend you enjoy this coffee within 3 months of the roasting date.
Store in a dry and cool place, between +16 and +25 degrees.
