Alemu Bukato Ethiopia

Coffee Story

Coffee Story

Our Alemu Bukato is sourced from 700 family-owned farms located in the Gedeo Zone in the Southern Nations, Nationalities and People's Region of Ethiopia. Ripe cherries are delivered to the Alemu Bukato Washing station where they are sorted, depulped, fermented, washed, and dried on raised drying beds. This floral coffee boasts notes of lemon and nectarine and personifies what is so special about coffees from Ethiopia, a country blessed with the world's richest diversity of Arabica genetics.

Coffee Review

93 pts      Aroma: 9     Acidity:9   Body: 8     Flavor: 9    Aftertaste: 8

Blind Assessment: Deeply rich, crisply sweet-tart. Apricot, pink grapefruit zest, malt, dark chocolate, orange blossom in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory in structure with juicy acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The nuanced finish leads with notes of apricot and orange blossom in the short, rounding to malt-toned chocolate in the long.

Bottom Line: A classic washed Yirgacheffe cup: juicy and crisply sweet-tart with notes of stone fruit, citrus blossom and chocolate throughout.
