When we tasted this coffee on the cupping table, we new we had to have it. Like a lot of coffees from Guji, you get lovely black tea notes, as well as a peach sweetness and an underlying purple grape candy flavour. But with this coffee all those notes are amplified from the 2-3 day fermentation, which also gives it a super syrupy body.
The Layo Teraga washings station comprises 500 farms and is located on some of the highest elevation in Ethiopia.
This coffee would suit as a really pleasant espresso, and shines as a filter coffee.

A note on roast dates:
Contrary to most coffee myths (based off old information), it's best not to use coffee that is too fresh. For espresso, we recommend using coffee between three days to four weeks old, while filter and drip coffee it's best if the beans are three weeks to twelve weeks from the date of roasting.
