Region: Chelbelsa, Yirgacheffe

Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi-forest vegetation, encompassing false banana trees as well as shade-grown coffee trees, Chelbesa is a great example of excellent coffee growing agro-ecology. The soil In this area is particularly fertile, iron rich, red brown in colour and with high acidity content.

In 2019, SNAP Specialty Coffee built their new wet mill in a small hamlet called Danche within the wider Chelbesa Village with the hope of exclusively purchasing red cherries from the local farmers. Their ambition became a reality after completion of the project.

This lot consists of the produce of 495 smallholder farmers delivering their cherries to the mill. This particular lot has been processed as a traditional natural from the cherry deliveries that constitute the second part of the harvest.

Please note, our espresso grind is suitable for most home coffee machines. If you have a commercial grade coffee machine, E.g. Linea Mini, then please add an order note in your basket, requesting commercial espresso grind.

We would always recommend that you use a grinder at home in order to achieve the grind suitable for your particular brewing equipment, but we appreciate that this is not always possible, so we do offer our coffee as ground. We offer grind options that we think would achieve the best results from the numerous variations of machines and equipment that are available to consumers, but we cannot guarantee that our ground options will work with every unique set up.
