The world of coffee is like a pyramid. All of the coffee that Colonna selects and curates sits right up the top of that pyramid. The coffees in this genre are the glint at the very tip of the apex. These coffees are sought after and by their very nature are in short supply.
An unusual anaerobic Yirgacheffe lot, balancing bold, boozy acidity with a beautifully clean cup profile.
Hailing from the Yirgacheffe woreda in the Gedeo Zone of Ethiopia, we are excited to present this anaerobic lot of Kurume, Dega and Wolisho. Coffees from this region are typically associated with floral, citrus and tea like notes, but this fuller flavoured cup is a stunning example of the depth of flavour the region can produce.
Fermented in twelve separate tanks for a combined 35-48 hours, the ripe cherries are then dried for eighteen days across traditional raised beds. It’s a thrill to see more experimental processing from Ethiopian mills, and we can’t wait to highlight more coffees of this calibre from arguably the mother of all coffee origins.
