We bought this coffee from Heleanna Georgalis who runs Moplaco Trading Company and is following in the footsteps of her father. Her goal is to source coffees from all over Ethiopia, keeping in mind two parameters: deliciousness in the cup and respect for the local communities.
This coffee is from Chelbesa Village, located in the District of Gedeb, itself found in the Zone of Gedio. The Yirgacheffe Chelbesa washing station was purchased in 2021 with the hope of producing high quality washed coffee.
Coffee from Gedeb has a florality that Yirgacheffe coffee has become known for. Cherries are typically juicy and large, with beans that, though small and compact, are full of complex flavours.
We buy this coffee directly from Heleanna Georgalis.
