Sourced from Gelanabaya station, located in the renowned Borena zone within the Yirgacheffe region, this grade 1 microlot showcases the best of Ethiopian coffee craftsmanship. What sets this coffee apart is its unique processing method. The cherries undergo an extended fermentation period in vacuum-sealed stainless steel tanks equipped with a fermentation valve, allowing the release of carbon dioxide. This innovative approach enhances the flavour profile, resulting in a coffee that captivates the senses.

Gelana Abaya, situated near the border of the SNNP region and the town of Yirgacheffe, has established itself as a cradle of excellence for coffee production. The combination of high altitude, reaching up to 2,200 meters above sea level in some areas, fertile soil, abundant rainfall, and generations of local knowledge contribute to the revered status of Yirgacheffe coffees. The indigenous 'heirloom' varietals, which grow wild in Ethiopia, are responsible for the captivating flavour notes that create an unparalleled and exquisitely refined cup of coffee.
