Danche has a soft texture, typical of Ethiopia, with a jasmine tea-like quality, fruits such as red grapes and ripe stone fruits, and a black tea-like flavour.
From the moment the coffee beans are ground, the gorgeous aroma spreads and the heart dances.
This year is the third year we have bought this Danche, and this year's coffee is again sweet, gentle and fruity.
Chelbesa is located at an altitude of 2100 m above sea level in the Gedeo area, which includes the famous Yirgacheffe area, which is no longer unknown in Ethiopia. one of the best coffee-growing areas in the region of Gedeb Woreda.
Purification method: Washed
Cherries are harvested manually and are also sorted immediately before the refining process.A standard disc pulper removes the pulp, floats it in the water, and sorts it into Grades 1, 2, 3 and 4.We buy only the best quality Grade 1 fruit.
After the pulping, the parchment is submerged in water tanks for 72 hours, where the fermentation removes the mucilage.The wet-mille's fermentation tanks are made of ceramic, which not only gives clarity to the coffee but also speeds up the fermentation process and improves uniformity.
It is then thoroughly cleaned in the washing channel.This process is also carried out simultaneously with specific gravity sorting using water.
This is a traditional sorting method in Ethiopia and other African countries.
Dense, sunken material is the higher grade.
The parchment is then soaked in clean water for two hours.
After soaking, the parchment is moved to an African bed drying table, spread evenly to a thickness of 2 cm and dried in the sun for about ten days to 2 weeks.
Once dried, the parchment is transferred to a covered warehouse, where it is finished by manually removing any defective beans for 2-4 hours.
