Ethiopia Bench Maji Biftu - DP

Currently available Whole Bean and On the Siphon: Ethiopia Bench Maji Biftu - DP.

Bench Maji is a region that borders Sudan and the Gambela region. This coffee is from a farm called Gesha Estate and not far from the town of Biftu and Gesha. This is the location of the origins of the famous Panama coffee. Even with the microclimate and elevation differences, this coffee cups as an intensely complex, natural dry-processed offering.

In the cup it's a fruit bomb! Incredible fruit aromatics prepare you for the tropical paradise that awaits you. Apricot, melon, mango, berry, hints of floral and cocoa nibs. Fruit flavors intensity as it cools. Spectacular!
