Ethiopia Dame Dabaye Washed (Organic)
Tangerine, Apple Butter, Milk Chocolate
Coffee experts seem to get really excited when a washed coffee tastes like sweet fruits and smells like flowers – it's a reflection of high quality and can't be fudged. This Guji lot is generous and balanced notes of tangerine, apple butter and milk chocolatey are essentially, then, a scientific marvel! Sip it via your preferred brew method and report back to us, thanks.
"This one's a washed lot from the Dame Dabaye washing station in the Guji zone of Ethiopia. It shines with its crisp body and soft citrus acidity, with a little milk chocolate ebbing in the finish. Our export partners, Sibu Coffee, have been working extensively with farmers in the region for over 20 years, investing in the surrounding community through school renovations and fresh water resources. Dame Dabaye has the rare privilege of being certified organic, meaning buyers are assured of quality practices at the farm level!"
They took a pioneering approach to sourcing coffee through a relationship model, placing emphasis on direct trade as a way to support thriving livelihoods for producers at origin. They earned Roast Magazine's prestigious 'Roaster of the Year' award in 2013, are home to the first barista union in the USA and are currently transitioning to a worker-owned company. Gimme! Coffee roasts all their coffee on two Probat drum-style roasters at their facility in Ithaca, NY.
