Ethiopia Gerba Natural
Floral, blueberry, papaya, chocolate
Shebera Shonora is a 32 year old coffee farmer who started producing coffee in Guji around the town of Gerba 10 years ago. Shebera is related to Abiyot from Buno General Trading and so they decided to work together to export Sheberas coffee directly. Shebera is passionate about producing clean fruity naturals and this clearly shows in the cup. Having recently purchased land near his father’s washing station, he decided to plant coffee on 4 hectares of land. Shebera also markets coffee from a processing station that he finances in Gerba and process it with great care. Harvesting takes place from late November to February, given the altitude cherries will take longer to mature than other coffees in the area. The main varieties grown at the farm are 74140 and 74112, which are selections of local heirloom varieties.

Roasting Profile:

*We will wait for the next week's roast and then ship your entire order.


 
 


* Fresh coffee is great. Well, not always!

Gasses, mainly carbon dioxide (CO2), are formed within the bean during roasting process. As the coffee gets older these gasses seep out from the bean, making it less gassy. This process is called degassing. Although its totally ok for your health, it's known to cause off-flavors such as astringency /bitterness and even sharp sour taste. Also gives you uneven extraction, unpredictable brews. Simply less than ideal cup of coffee.

So we advise you to rest your beans a minimum of 5 days post-roast to achieve best results, even further, like 10 days, if you are using it for espresso.

We pack the beans right after roasting in airtight bags, with one way valve. This valve lets the gasses out, while preventing any fresh air sneaking in. Thus ensuring freshness. An unopened pack will preserve most of its characteristics up to 3 months. Once opened, we advise you to use it within 2 weeks. Our packs are releasable, so they are good for storage after opening. If you are planning to use another container, make sure it's airtight.

Store you coffees in dark, non-humid places, refrigerator is a big no-no. And keep it away from spices and other smelly stuff as it tends to absorb any smells present in vicinity. Always grind right before use, for optimum freshness. Use scale for consistency. And you can check out our website for further brewing info.

Enjoy!
