This is our second year working with Seife Tulloskorpi in Ethiopia as an exporter and facilitator and also our second year buying from Israel Degfa. Israel is a renowned Ethiopian coffee producer and we are seeing why with this year's coffees. In blind cuppings at origin his coffees consistently scored at the top on the tables we tasted, and meeting with him impressed us. He is very focused on farmer needs at all of his washing stations. Often we promote the idea that caring for producers at the bottom levels directly impacts quality and he brings that idea to life.
Koga Wote is another of Israel's washing stations that far outpaced any other coffees we tasted this year. This is an intensely floral coffee, with earl grey/bergamot notes, citrus acidity, and a smooth clean mouthfeel. It also has some unusual flavors; prominent esters and stone fruit notes are in the cup. Overall it's fairly complex, with different layers as it cools.
