Ethiopia Abana Sulladjah
raspberry, tangerine, hibiscus
Process: Fully washed
Sulladjah is the second lot from Abana Estate that we’ve featured this year, and although similar to Ginjo in many ways, we found this lot to have more depth and complexity in the cup. Sulladjah is a separated density sorting of coffee from the area of the estate that Heart has set aside. We are floored by the quality of processing and milling this coffee has shown, and we’re sure you’ll be able to see it’s consistency when brewing it.
Abana is an Estate in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. The estate is located in and around an old growth forest in southwestern Ethiopia, which promotes biodiversity and natural shade for the coffee plants. Along with naturally ideal surroundings, the farm also features a water recycling mill and a coffee waste disposal lagoon that allows the cherries to turn into mulch and breakdown away from other plant life. This paired with a creek and natural spring on the farm make this a perfect place to produce quality coffee.
Abana is another example of our intention to work with more sustainable coffee farms, and to support people whose work has a positive impact on the surrounding community. The Omran family has invested in a pre-school and medical facilities in the nearby town of Gera and are trying to make a difference in the lives of the people working on their farm. This coffee is truly delicious, and we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we have dialing it in here in the lab!
