CUPPING NOTES FROM OUR HEAD ROASTER

Wush Wush, named after the Wushwush village in Ethiopia where it grows as an heirloom variety, is an extremely rare varietal that made its way to Latin America around 30 years ago. Like Gesha, Wush Wush is exceptionally sweet in the cup with complex florality and plenty of fruit notes. However, where it differs from Gesha varietals, is that Wush Wush leans a little bit more heavily into herbal notes. This Orange Striped Wush Wush is grown by José Giraldo, a third generation coffee farmer and an absolute master of processing.

For this lot, José chose to use Carbonic Maceration– a technique taken from winemaking– as the primary processing method. With this method, the whole coffee cherries are sealed into airtight tanks which are then pumped full of carbon dioxide which allows the cherry pectin to break down from the inside out. This traps much of the flavor in the coffee parchment which yields vibrant, winey tasting notes in the cup.

While white wine is a tasting note in our release of this lot, it takes a back seat to floral tones and fruit. On the nose you can expect cherry, lemongrass, and a candy-like sweetness. Once brewed you should taste white peach, apricot, jasmine, blueberry, rosewater, melon, and a winey finish that becomes more apparent as it cools.

ABOUT THIS ALLOCATION COFFEE

Originally from the Wushwush region in the Ethiopia's southwest, the Wush Wush variety has found a new home in Colombia where the elevation and soil content create the perfect growing conditions for sweeter, more delicate coffees. Combine that with the know-how of Jose Giraldo of Cafe 1959 and you end up with one of the most delicious coffees on the market.

FARM HISTORY

This one-of-a-kind coffee was developed by Milton Monroy. His farm, San Cayetano, is one of the most famous coffee farms in the region of San Juan de la China because of his impeccable farming practices. Milton’s father introduced him to coffee with the production of traditional coffees such as Castillo and Caturras. It was through this that they learned all about coffee crops.

After several years, they learned of an amazing variety known as Gesha which they were instantly impressed by after cupping it for the first time. From this one cupping, they decided to dedicate nearly 25% of their entire farm to this specific variety. As Milton says, it was the best decision they’ve ever made since getting started in coffee. Not only has Monroy mastered processing the Gesha variety, but he has also become a finalist in the Cup of Excellence in Colombia for several years running.
