Hama is back!
Harvested: Spring 2019
Variety: Heirloom varieties
Location: Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia
Tastes Like: watermelon, peach, oolong tea
Grown by: Hama Cooperative Society
One of the most anticipated coffees we roast, it was in consultation with Takele Mammo, the former head of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), that we connected with the coffees from the Hama producer group during a visit in 2011.
Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, and the Hama a quintessential example of what the region can provide. The resulting coffee, once roasted, presents an unusually ﬂoral cup with highlights of acidity and sweetness. Complex and ﬂoral, with ﬂavors of watermelon, peach, even strong oolong tea.
