Why love it?
This is a wonderful coffee from the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmer's Cooperative Union "Worka", a cooperative member with 305 individual members each farming less than 4 hectares of land.  It is found in the Gedeb district, approximately 40 miles from the market town of Dilla. It was founded in 2005 and is known for producing a remarkable, high-altitude (> 8000 ft above sea level) natural-processed Heirloom coffee. Coffee cherries are dried under the sun on raised beds and under close attention, and control, over fermentation. The result is a unique, hard-to-find, flavor profile with strong floral and berry aromas.  

Shines in pour-overs, in light to medium roasts. Also great on Drip, French Press, and high-dilution Aeropress.
