Ethiopia, Zelelu Ararso, Natural

A rare opportunity to taste single farmer Ethiopian coffee at its finest. This coffee is loaded with classic flavors of blueberry, blackberry, grape, and chocolate.

The Story

Zelelu is an accomplished individual, even by the standards of Gedeo, whose dense farming and processing landscape has a reputation for competitive farmers. He has earned model farming awards at local and state levels for working with the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) to pioneer single farmer exports; the efforts of which helped like-minded farmers throughout Yirgacheffe’s union achieve direct sale and see their coffees priced and roasted with just about unprecedented transparency. In addition, Zelelu educates his children to a college level and will soon be processing his own harvests.
