Hot cups of this coffee are dominated by sweet bright red fruit notes like strawberry, raspberry, and cranberry. Floral notes are also undoubtedly present, albeit in a more subdued manner than the fruit notes. As the cup cools, notes of darker fruits become more prominent with dark red wine grapes, chocolate, blackberry, and blueberry composing the notes on the fully cooled cup.

Producer Notes
This coffee is produced in the Gedeo Zone from which it takes its name. Gedeo is a geographical zone comprising a small, high altitude, plateau that is absolutely perfect for growing coffee. This unique terroir has given rise to a unique culture surrounding the cultivation of coffee. Coffee mills compete to purchase the finest lots of coffee from farmers who both know how to produce incredible coffee and know the value of their crop.

Flavors commonly exist in this zone that hardly exist elsewhere. Peach, vanilla, tropical fruits, jasmine, honeysuckle, coconut, the list of flavors present in this zone hardly seem like they could ever be used to describe coffee, but it is impossible to explain the flavor of these coffees without those terms.

This lot, along with many lots purchased by Black Oak Coffee, comes from the Aricha washing station, which currently processes the coffee from around 650 farmers who operate farms that average just two hectares.

Amazing bright/berry coffee

Prepared with an aerotpress + fellow prismo. I keep coming back, for the same reason other reviewers do!

Best coffee I’ve ever had

Serious coffee addict here. This roast is without a doubt the finest brew I’ve ever tasted. I bought mine at the Ukiah shop. I will be signing up for the monthly Deliveries.

Best Natural

Fantastic coffee, perhaps my favorite of 2021. When I get the brew just right a distinct peachy fruitiness that blows me away.

Great flavors

You can really taste the blueberry as the cup cools. Will have to buy more and try as a cold brew!

Great coffee w/ strong berry notes

I started ordering this after the Dukunde Kawa was no longer available. It is similar, and has a nice berry flavor using a pour over ice w/ water @ 201deg.

Another incredible Ethiopian selection from Black Oak

This was an incredibly delicious cup of coffee! Unbelievably fruity sweetness comes out of each cup of this natural process selection. On par with the Bensa Ethiopian offering from a few months ago which was the best coffee I've ever had!

Top 3 of All Time

The fruity undertones make my taste buds go wild with every sip. You want to relax, brew a cup and enjoy being swept away!

Best of the Best!

Hands down one of the years best coffees.
