This is the winner of the first ever Cup of Excellence in Ethiopia. We probably don’t need to say much more than that, but this coffee beat out a record number of submissions and went for a whopping $185.10/pound. We are incredibly proud to roast this coffee and share it with you.
Niguse produces 15,000 kilograms of red cherry annually, which he dries naturally on an African bed. However, due to a lack of linkage to the international market, he has been selling his coffee locally to a private buyer and ECX.
This is sure to change in the years to come, as Niguse will surely become a well known name in the world of specialty coffee, and rightly so with this stunner.
