Another delicious coffee from Ethiopia

Ethiopia – Yirgacheffe Konga Coop

Fair Trade Organic

A deliciously unique, floral aroma – reminiscent of marigolds – greets you initially, while the cup itself delivers a satisfying silky body with definite tones of sweet lemons and freshly cracked black pepper. Zesty and refreshing, classic flavour notes of rich chocolate and an incredible sweetness round out this coffee experience.

Konga is one of 21 smallholder Cooperatives founded in 2002 following deregulation of the government controlled Coffee & Tea Authority. Each Cooperative has a democratically elected board with 2000 members in each group. At Konga, which is named after the local river, the coffee has always been grown without chemicals and recently secured both Organic and Fair Trade status. In this area most coffee is grown on the family plot just outside their thatched-leaved home as “garden coffee”, intercropped amongst staple vegetables planted together under the canopy of the coffee trees. Some is harvested wild from the forest.
