We have been buying beautiful naturally processed Ethiopians from the Worka cooperative for the last three years. This, however, is the first year that Worka has been able to separate individual lots from each of the three villages that contribute to their coffee: Banko Gotiti, Banko Dadhato, and Halo Bariti. This lot hails from the village of Banko Gohiti (affectionately, Banko), Yirgacheffe. The village is located in the Southern part of the Gedeo region of Yirgacheffe where it borders the Northern part of Sidama.
This lot was submitted to the taste of Africa coffee competition and took first place and with good reason. It presents fruit punchy aromatics with notes of plum and tamarind, loads of sweetness and a bright, focused finish.
