We invite people we work with to taste coffees before they're released, to help define the tasting notes that inform the brush stroke illustration for the coffee. For this coffee we invited our Head Roaster Claire Wallace.

Gora Kone

Gora Kone takes its name from the twenty-five farmers of Gora Village who contributed coffee to this lot. The village is located in the sub-municipality of Udo Hadamma bekele, which in turn sits within the Guji region of south central Ethiopia.

Gora farmers are students of Ture Waji - founder of Sookoo Coffee and widely recognised as the 'King of Guji' for his pioneering work in Ethiopian coffee farming.

On average each farmer owns about 3.5Ha of land on which they farm mostly loam soil (a balanced mix of sand, silt and clay soil), under the shade of indigenous trees. 

At the local Wosasa drying station each lot is tagged and tracked separately (unique for community processing mills) for greater transparency, and to enable more control and precision when drying. Each lot is tracked by the delivery date and moisture content is recorded daily. This optimises the immediate taste quality in the cup and can contribute to longer quality of life of the green.

Method

Brew Gora Kone on the Orea Brewer to unlock the sweet, tea-like qualities of the coffee, or use a french-press for a less acidic, more full-bodied cup.

Coffees are whole bean as standard. If you'd like your coffee ground please specify for which brewing style in the notes at checkout and we'll grind fresh.
