This is our first year working with Abana Coffee Estates.We were incredibly excited to partner directly with someone doing great work in Ethiopia.Abana Translates to “our fathers” (Arabic), in which Abana is paying homage to the deep roots, rich heritage and origins of wild arabica coffee that traces to the heart of Ethiopia.They believe that their work to produce the best specialty coffee is as fundamentally important as the positive impact they make in the community.Abana Coffee Estate focuses on sustainable business practices by paying fair wages and respecting all partners.They also implement coffee education to improve quality, focus on the environment by utilizing water efficient machinery and preserving the forest in which they work, and finally through carrying out impactful social programs that benefit the community.
This second coffee from Abana Coffee Estates too has an incredible flavor but was was processed differently thus giving it the name.The name Giulietta was given to their Anaerobic Fermentation lot. This was their first time producing this lot and has incredible flavor boasting clean florals and a lactic silky mouthfeel that is common in Anaerobic coffees. This coffee is truly unique with its balanced acidity that we felt resembled that of a peach and apricot, milk like mouthfeel and wonderful florals like chamomile and a silky body that paired with complex flavors make this a refined coffee experience.This coffee is truly unique and worth trying.
