This holiday season we wanted to give you the option of choice! Have you been Naughty or Nice? We roasted these coffees identically and only changed the drop temperature between the two. Our Nice Natural will offer more fruit and be more in line with the Constellation Coffee portfolio while our Naughty Natural takes it a bit darker, which might appeal to you if you are a fan of more traditional roasts that are commercially available. We recommend trying both! With only 15 degrees separating both these coffees we think you will enjoy the contrast in color, smell and most importantly...FLAVOR!
This coffee comes from the Chelchele washing station, which is in the kebele, or village, of Chelchele, in the words, or district, of Kochere, in the Yirgacheffe region. Chelchele coffees tend to have a nice backbone of sweetness from toffee and/or soft nuts like almond, with a floral and citrus overtone.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically grown on very small plots of land by farmers who also grow other crops. The majority of smallholders will deliver their coffee in cherry to a nearby washing station or central processing unit, where their coffee will be sorted, weighed, and paid for or given a receipt. The washing stations serve as many as several hundred to sometimes a thousand or more producers, who deliver cherry throughout the harvest season: The blending of these cherries into day lots makes it virtually impossible under normal circumstances to know precisely whose coffee winds up in which bags on what day, making traceability to the producer difficult. We do, however, make every available effort to source coffee from the same washing stations every year, through our export partners and their connections with mills and washing stations.
