FLAVOR: Raspberry, Tangerine, Black Tea

Bright and bursting with fruit-forward flavors, this coffee greets you with vivid notes of sweet, tangy raspberry and tangerine citrus. Subtle nutty flavors follow, coupled with rich notes of black tea. A sweet, lingering finish culminates in the coffee’s overall juicy body.
This coffee comes to us from Gera Farm, a vast estate that stretches over ancient forested highland areas of western Ethiopia in the Oromia Region. Established in 2008, Gera Farm was founded on 100 hectares of land. Over ten years later and countless coffee seedlings planted, the farm's production area has grown to 500 hectares. Despite this development of modern coffee farming in the area, Gera's farmers prioritize preserving the forested land and work in harmony with the wildlife and natural habitat that thrives there. After all, it is thought that the natural habitat contributes to the health and vitality of the coffee trees and gives the coffee it’s superior quality and flavor. We have featured coffees from Gera Farm in the past and we are continually amazed by the farm's commitment to sustainability and employee well-being. The farm has dedicated itself to improved employee working conditions by providing complimentary housing, education, and healthcare for their employees. Gera Farm's investment certainly pays off, as the farm continues to produce world-class coffee year after year.
