Ethiopia Gera

Ethiopia Gera

Different Gera but similar!

The Gera is back after a strong run in early 2016. I found a "lot" from the same region,city, and station that tasted exceptional and not too far off from the original one. Maybe now is a good time to share that Coffee farms don't do just one harvest. Further in Ethiopia the Adado and Gera are just stations where people from around the area bring their coffees in.

Different Gera but similar!

The Gera is back after a strong run in early 2016. I found a "lot" from the same region,city, and station that tasted exceptional and not too far off from the original one. Maybe now is a good time to share that Coffee farms don't do just one harvest. Further in Ethiopia the Adado and Gera are just stations where people from around the area bring their coffees in. Tractability is a bit of an issue as always with these African coffees but to get this level of coffee - this is no amateur hour stuff.  A lot of attention to sorting has been done. 

Add in my forever dilemma of having having a glut of labels of any single coffee laying around when this appeared out of thin air and with similar tastes it was a bit of a no brainer to bring this back. With that said it's different than before but not so far off that the back labels wouldn't be off. That candy like lemon/lime aspect is still around though it's a bit more pucker sweet than before I feel. It's a very bright coffee due to the exceptionally light roasting done but if you've bought my coffees before you know exactly what's coming with this. I don't shy away from what makes these coffees so great.
