This very high grown offering is produced by Esayas Beriso, a first generation coffee grower. He worked in a government office for much of his adult life, but made the switch to buying and selling his neighbors coffee, and eventually growing his own to sell as well. Where he grows is one of the highest elevation regions in Ethiopia, and the flavor density of his product shows it. The Dega varietal is an Ethiopian heirloom local to Gedeo, which does particularly well at high elevation.

The coffee is hand picked and sorted before undergoing a 72 hour wet fermentation. It is soaked for 2 hours, then dried for a 10 day period, during which several more rounds of hand sorting occur. This is a great showing of an early season Ethiopian - flavors of sweet melon bring complexity to the many other fruited layers, as well as some pleasant black tea in the background.
