Ethiopia Chelbesa Natural

Natural Ethiopia is back in the Huck lineup, and we’re kicking things off with this juicy and complex fruitbomb from Worka Chelbesa! Sweet, juicy berry flavors are the main attraction here, and they’re complemented by some delicious florals and citrus. This natural arrived in the US a bit later than expected thanks to a myriad o global shipping snafus, but for a few short weeks, we'll be roasting both washed and natural coffees from Worka Chelbesa side-by-side. Both of these are among the top-scoring coffees we'll offer all year.

SNAP Specialty Coffees has impressed us quite a bit over the last few years. They’ve exported and dry milled some of our favorite coffees from the Guji Zone, but also own a few washing stations throughout Ethiopia. This is the second year we'll be showcasing coffees from their stations in Worka Chelbesa. Worka Chelbesa is the highest kebele (village) in the Gedeb municipality, and Gedeb is well-known for producing some of the best coffees in Ethiopia's famous Yirgacheffe region.

Several years ago, SNAP built its first washing in Worka Chelbesa, and named it after the town. While in some years our Chelbesas come from Snap's newer station in the same village, Danche, but this year both coffees come from the OG Worka Chelbesa washing station and the roughly 700 small farmers who deliver cherry to the station.

Berries, tropical fruit, jammy goodness, with a touch of florality and citrus to mix things up. This one’s for all you fruity coffee lovers out there - we hope you enjoy this one as much as we do. We highly suggest brewing up Worka Chelbesa washed and Chelbesa Natural side-by-side. We'll give you a few more chances to taste washed and naturals from the same place, but in the roasting team's opinion, this will be one of the best-tasting pairs of the year.
