Region:

The town of Chelelektu is in Kochere district (not far from Yirgacheffe town) in Gedeo zone, ‘Southern Nations, Nationalities & Peoples’ (SNNP) region of Ethiopia. It is amongst the highest altitude towns in the region. Over a number of years the region has developed a distinguised reputation for fine coffees, producing some of the most sought-after microlots in world. The combination of high altitude (up to 2,200m in some areas), fertile soil, consistent & plentiful rains, and an abundance of local knowledge are all contributing factors to the high status of Yirgacheffe coffees. The indigenous ‘heirloom’ varietals - which grow wild in Ethiopia - are responsible for the unique flavor notes which make for an unusual but refined cup, characterised by strong citric acidity, sweet chocolate and floral/herbal notes of lavender, jasmine, bergamot and hops.

Flavor Notes: Blackberry, plum, grape, mandarin orange

Roast: Medium
