Ethiopia Abana Estate Washed - African Single Origin
Heirloom (Metu Bishari, Gera, and Merdacheriko)
|Harvest Schedule||October '17 - January '18|
This is the first coffee in our new relationship with Abana Estate. It is an easy going natural processed coffee that is very smooth, sweet, and slightly fruity. As their next harvest finishes up in January of '19, we hope to bring in even more exciting coffees from them, including other Naturals and Honey processed coffees.
