Ethiopia Reko Yirgacheffe
FLAVOR: JASMINE, NECTARINE, APPLE
Tart and juicy at first, then sweet and crisp in the finish, this Ethiopian coffee yields a complex cup that does not disappoint. Notes of jasmine blossom, fresh nectarine, and tart apple shine through the medium body. This offering from Reko has been a favorite of ours in the past, and we're pleased to offer it again for you to enjoy.
The founders of the Reko washing station began with the mission to elevate the coffee production quality of the area. Ethiopia is the motherland of some of the world's best coffee, and the founders and operators of the Reko washing station aim to establish themselves as producers of Ethiopia's best offerings. The washing station shares its name with the local Reko mountain - a monolith that dominates the area's skyline. The name "Reko" comes from the local Afaan Oromo word for "challenge," aptly given to the difficult-to-scale mountain and adopted by the washing station to signify the challenges they endure to achieve their goals. This offering is a direct result of the dedication and passion employed at Reko. Enjoy!
