Wush Wush - Ethiopia
Origin: Keffa, Ethiopia
Tasting Notes: Raspberry, Cherry, Plum
Approximately 2500 smallholder farmers from the surrounding area bring their cherries to Dinkalem Ademe’s washing station, where the sign above the gate says, “GENALEM GEWYERO” —GOD IS GOOD”—a motto he and his wife, Sofiya have taken for their lives. Together they are a dynamic couple dedicated to helping their communities in every way. The outgrowers in the Ginbo district are smallholders, aka “garden farmers,” so called because most of them are producing coffee in the “garden” areas around their homes, and often harvesting cherries from coffee occurring naturally on the land where they live. Dinkalem has developed a robust outgrower’s program that brings economic advantages to his neighbors and friends.

Wush Wush is a coffee filled with fruited notes and exemplifies natural process Ethiopian coffee. It is balanced and refined, not overly “fermenty” but very pleasant with notes of raspberry, cherry and plum with some soft floral undertones.
