This delicious washed coffee, from the forested mountains of Nansebo, is surprisingly savory and creamy with notes of apple cider, lemon-lime, and stewed peaches. Its wonderfully complex flavor profile is a result of the combination of multiple landrace varieties.
"Elegantly bright, very balanced. Apricot, honeysuckle, almond brittle, dark chocolate, cedar in aroma and cup. Richly sweet structure with floral acidity; lively, silky mouthfeel. Long, lingering, complexly satiating finish."

Form meets function in the classically beautiful Chemex brewer. Grind size is critical when brewing with this method since the brew bed can get large. Use a coarser grind to experience bright and floral fruit notes.
The water-filed terrain of Nansebo seems custom designed for producing beautiful coffees. The land is mountainous and hilly, with over half of it carpeted by forests. The challenges of bringing coffee out of this region are legendary. For the local people, coffee is an important cash crop. The majority of plots are between 2 to 10 hectares and yield may be only a few bags.
Ripe cherries are purchased by the washing station and combined and processed together. This results in a wonderfully complex and unique flavor profile, representing multiple landrace varieties.
