Ethiopia / Gelana Abaya

from 17.00

:: Description ::
This Grade 1, wet processed coffee is from the Gelana Abaya area, which is located in central southern Ethiopia's Gedeo Zone and borders the Kochere Woreda (woredas are third-level administrative divisions, collected into zones) and Guji Zone. It was wet milled at the Cherenet washing station in Celinga where there are 750 contributing farmers.

Ethiopia is the birthplace of Arabica coffee, and one of the finest coffee-producing countries in the world.  The legend of how coffee was discovered tells the story of a goat breeder discovering coffee by watching his goats act strange after eating the fruits of an unfamiliar tree. He took the fruit's seeds to the nearest monastery, where the monks prepared a tea from them. The monks then felt very energetic and stayed awake all night long. After the monks discovered the effect of the beans, the news was shared from monastery to monastery. Coffee was then transported from Ethiopia to Egypt and Yemen and so on.
