When visiting Gemede Dekama in Hambela Wamena, we were stunned by the beautiful location and its versatile biodiversity. Most of the farms surrounding the washing station are immersed in the forest that grows on the hillside, with access to the water from the nearest river. Because of its unique location, innovative farming techniques, and luscious terroir, this coffee promises to be a pearl amongst our Ethiopian varieties.
Tirtira Goyo is located in Gotiti, a subregion of Guji. Its typical rich red African soil at a relatively high altitude of 2120 masl is able to offer an annual harvest of approximately 2340 bags of coffee.
The classic washing process is executed very carefully, the cherries sit in the fermentation tank for 72 hours with a 5 hour soaking period. The green beans in parchment were put on African beds for 8 days to dry out.
Coffee processed at the Tirtira Goyo is an excellent addition to our fresh releases of Ethiopian lots.
It presents notes of lemon zest, bergamot orange and agave sugar with a dense, sweet, creamy mouthfeel.
