Thrive Coffee's Ethiopia Single Origin coffee offers a unique flavor experience, with a well rounded combination of fruit notes and a delicate body.
Beans for this coffee are sourced from the Adame Gorbota Farmer's Cooperative in Wenago, which is in the northwestern part of the coveted Gedeo Zone—the narrow section of highland plateau whose coffee is known the world over as “Yirgacheffe”, after the Zone’s most famous district.
Processing for Adame Gorbota members occurs at sites outside the town of Wenago. Cherry is often delivered directly by farmer members or, in the case of members living further away, to select collection sites run by the cooperative. The arrival cherry is sorted by hand first to separate the less dense cherries. Then, the best cherries are taken to raised beds to dry under the sunlight for about 21 days. After the coffee is dried with cherry, it is then milled to remove the husks. Fully dried coffee is rested for one month on cooperative property.
We hope you will enjoy this coffee as much as we do!
