Ethiopia Sidama Gerbicho Lela


After years of relying upon this coffee to add flickers of fruit and citrus to our most beloved blends, the Gerbicho Lela is finally having a chance to shine on its own. We roast it lightly in order to bring out the floral and honeyed qualities of this washed single origin whose layers of complexity can only come from southern Ethiopia. Sidama gives us many of our favorite coffees each year. This one, from the Gerbicho Lela washing station, is not only supremely focused, it is also grown to the highest standards: The entire Washing Station is Organic, Rainforest Alliance, and Fair Trade certified.
