Organic Ethiopia Gedeo Worka (Natural-Processed)
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia.|
|Est. Price:||$15.93/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||October 2011|
Rich, minty dark chocolate, plummy fruit, hints of brandy and cedar in aroma and cup. Round, low-toned acidity; impressively syrupy mouthfeel. Richly flavor-saturated but slightly salty/astringent in the finish.
Certified organically grown. Worka is one of 22 primary cooperatives that fall under the umbrella of the Yirgacheffe Farmers Union located in the Gedeo Zone of southern Ethiopia. This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Olympia Coffee Roasting is a small-batch wholesale and retail roasting company with a youthful, no-nonsense style and a commitment to high quality organic coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It
A style of coffee we used to call “after-dinner,” meaning it embodies an arm-chair-and-brandy sort of richness and authority.
