Marcela was a doctor and coffee farmer in Armenia, and she and her husband enjoyed a shared past time experimenting with processing and varieties. After she passed away suddenly a couple of years ago her husband kept moving their coffee farms forward in her memory. This land race Wush Wush variety is one that we've purchased from here for two years now, and it's one of the most unusual coffees in our lineup.
Green Buyer Notes: Wush Wush can be a coffee that's TOO unique sometimes. This variety can sometimes exhibit a level of funkiness that rivals weird cheeses etc, but from Cristales it's always extremely clean and exceptionally vivid. The beauty in the variety is that it has the intensity of an heirloom (like Gesha) but a more unique flavor profile versus tasting like a 90 point Ethiopian. When I find that rare combination of unique and high quality, I know we have a winner!
