Ethiopia Wuri Gedeb

Don’t Wuri, be happy. Our final Ethiopian coffee from the 2018 harvest is packing the summery flavors to lift us out of late winter doldrums. Nectarine, mango, and sweet tea take us back to warmer climates, at least for a few minutes.

The Wuri washing station sits high in the village of Worka Sakaro in Gedeb, just south of Yirgacheffe, and this coffee has many of the flavors we love in washed Yirgs: florality, honeyed sweetness, juicy citrus and fruit. But where most Yirgacheffes skew towards an extremely delicate cup, Wuri Gedeb has a bit more syrup to its body, and the lemon-lime flavors in great Yirgs are mellow in balance to Wuri’s ripe mango, berry, and stone fruit sweetness.

Huckleberry’s coffee from the Wuri washing station is a special selection. It comes only from farms about 2000 meters above sea level, and that high altitude tends to create added complexity. Plus, the washing station the washing process one step further than normal. After the coffee’s fruity pulp (mucilage) was removed in the station’s washing channels, the staff at Wuri soaked this coffee in clean water. This post-wash soak is more common practice in Kenya than this part of Ethiopia, and though it’s far from the only difference between the two regions, we do tend to note a bit more body and heavy sweetness in washed Kenyas than washed Yirgs.

Are we smart enough to say for sure that the post-wash soak gives Wuri Gedeb it’s extra bit of syrupy goodness? Nope, but it’s a definite maybe. And whether or not that’s the main reason this coffee stood out for us, we do know that we like it a lot. If you’re looking for a break from winter weather, skip the Jimmy Buffet. Wuri Gedeb brings the summer vibes just as hard, won’t annoy your neighbors, and tastes great.
