Ethiopia Worka Natural
$17.50 – $92.00
This is a new crop, certified organic natural from the Worka Cooperative, a sub-group of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union. It’s the group that our Bekele Dukale coffee hails from,positioned in Gedeb–a woreda, or district, that we have become extremely partial to. We are very choosy when we cup and purchase dry processed coffees, and especially those from Ethiopia. Finding a fruity cup is pretty easy. Finding naturals that have clean (as opposed to pulpy or woody or overly fermented) fruit, and that aren’t clunky, takes quite a bit more work. We like our naturals to have great qualities beneath the process, along with acidity to help the fruit sing, and this one does. It has a dark chocolate base, purple fruit and florals, and a balanced tropical green acidity that ties everything together.
