This coffee comes from a washing station called Adado, which is in the kebele, or village, of Shara, in the woreda, or district, of Guanga, in the Yirgacheffe region, and is is named after the local tribe, "Adado." Aside from its near-legendary status as the "birthplace" of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation. Lush green forests are the perfect environment for cultivating extraordinary coffee, typically developing nuanced floral characteristics, articulate sweetness and a sparkling acidity. This coffee checks all of the boxes.
