Worka Chelechele, Ethiopia
Worka is a region in Gedeb, just west of Kochere and north of Yirgacheffe. This coffee was grown on a farm called Chelechele, which is blessed with fertile red soil and protected by shady trees. These beans are hand sorted and lightly fermented naturally with clean running water. The result is a clean, fruity, tea-like coffee that makes a very beautiful light roast.
Jasmine flowers, black tea and a light, peachy finish.
Our Roaster’s Choice balances the peach, tea and jasmine flavors to create a complex, medium bodied coffee.
Roasting the coffee further removes much of the jasmine notes, and turns the peach into a dried fruit taste. The black tea becomes stronger and gains a nutty taste.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
