Tsebel comes from Southern Ethiopia's Oromia region. Most families work small garden farm plots where they grow heirloom, typica, and guji varieties. These exceptionally small family lots are sold to the local washing station, Kellenso Mekonissa, which operates under principles of farmer equity, with well-defined social responsibility, economic transparency, and environmental stewardship.
This is a washed coffee, and only the ripest cherries are selected. The cherries pass through a depulper to separate the skin from the green coffee seeds inside. In order to clean the sticky sugar-laden pulp from the seeds, they are fermented between 16-48 hours. The excess mucilage is then washed away and the seeds are dried to an optimal moisture level. The combination of varieties and the washed process create a complex but clean cup characterized by flavors of fresh black cherries and tamarind, a jasmine florality, raw honey sweetness, with balanced medium-high acidity, and a silky medium-light body.
