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.

Shade-grown, ripe cherries are delivered at the end of the day to the mill for sorting. The cherries are then pulped and washed before being placed on raised African beds for approximately 12-15 days. In the daytime they are raked and turned periodically to ensure a consistent drying process; covered between 12pm & 3pm to protect them from sun damage and at night time to protect them from rainfall and moisture. Once the coffee has dried, it is milled, graded and thoroughly hand-sorted before being bagged in GrainPro for export from the port of Djibouti.
