Great taste at a great price

Used with a moka pot and very delicious on milk or black.

Watery and bitter

Went through an entire pack of these beans without yielding a single acceptable extraction. Even on the finest grind settings with a larger dose, the results were watery and mostly flavourless, with a lingering bitterness on the aftertaste. Wouldn't recommend.

Sorry to hear you found this coffee so poor. Any chance you remember what recipe you were using at the end? I know they take the feedback seriously, so I'd love to pass this through.

This lot is produced via the team at G&F (Gizaw and Frehiwot).

Alemayehu (Gizaw’ s father) produced coffee from his large privately owned coffee farms in the surrounding areas of Yirgacheffe until the new socialist government emerged in 1974 and nationalized his farms.

Scarred by these events, the then young Gizaw did not see any future in farm ownership due to the harsh new government policies. Instead, he shifted his focus to coffee processing, supplying in a modern approach in pursuit of his father’s vision with his wife, Frehiwot.

Ripe cherries are delivered to wet-mill where they are floated for defects, graded, and then placed on raised African beds, coffee is shaded between 12-3pm and turned frequently for steady drying until it reaches 11.5% in around 20-30 days.
