DESCRIPTION

Banko Gotiti is in the Yirgacheffe district in the SNPR region of Ethiopia. Over several years the region has developed a distinguished reputation for fine coffees, producing some of the most sought after micro-lots in the world. The combination of high altitude, fertile soil, plentiful rainfall and an abundance of local knowledge all contribute to the high status of Yirgacheffe coffees.

The indigenous ‘heirloom’ varietals which grow wild in Ethiopia are responsible for the unique flavour notes, which make for unusual but, beautifully refined cups.

This lot has been naturally processed using an experimental strawberry anaerobic fermentation method. Ripe cherries are carefully selected and then fermented in sealed barrels with fresh strawberries for 10 hours. The sugars in the strawberries help fuel the fermentation process, as well as adding subtle flavour into the cherries. The cherries are then dried in the sun on raised African beds for 12-15 days.
