    ABOUT THE BEAN

    The Adado Coffees are from the Adado washing station near the Kebele(village) or Shara in the Woreda(district) of Guanga. Located in the Gedeo zone, this coffee is named after the local tribe "Adado." The region comprises 7,000 farmers, contributing to eight mills and exports 20–30 containers annually. Adado is a favorite micro region of Yirgacheffe. Stone fruit, and lots of it, is the predominant flavour profile of this area. Apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup. The natural process of these lots really complement the typical profile of the washed coffee beautifully. One of the great things about Ethiopian coffees is the complete mix of varietals. It is estimated that somewhere between six thousand and ten thousand varietals exist naturally in these highlands, the origin of coffee: The cross-pollination of genetics is totally amazing.
