Origin: Uraga, Ethiopia
Selassie's Best brings you notes of oolong tea, date sugar, and green grape.
One of our most favorite regions is the Guji Zone of Ethiopia. The coffees from Guji are wonderfully floral, sweet, and full of complex flavors. This new lot of Uraga is no exception.
Sourced and imported by our friends at Red Fox, this G2 is more like a G1. The coffees from this lot were grown in the forests surrounding Yabitu Koba, Larcho Torka, and Layo Teraga. The Kerchanshe washing station where our coffee is processed began over 15 years ago and now comprises 350 raised beds, supporting 1900 farmers and their crops each season.
We call this roast "Selassie's Best to honor the Honorable Halie Selassie I.
*Halie Selassie I, born Ras Tafari Makonnen, was the Emperor of Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974. Prior to his coronation, he had been the Regent Plenipotentiary of Ethiopia from 1916. He is a defining figure in modern Ethiopian history. He was a member of the Solomonic dynasty who traced his lineage to Emperor Menelik I. His internationalist views led to Ethiopia becoming a charter member of the United Nations. In 1963, he presided over the formation of the Organisation of African Unity, the precursor of the African Union, and served as its first chairman. (*via Wikipedia)
