Ethiopia Lecho TorkaMy Friend's Coffee
Mandarin, Honey Mead, Limeade, Watermelon
This coffee draws its name from the village that grew it, Lecho Torka. Lecho Torka sits in the Uraga district of Ethiopia's Guji Zone, pretty much the southernmost point of the country's coffee-growing universe. It boasts some of the highest altitudes in Ethiopian coffee - upward of 2,200 meters - which translates to some seriously dense, uppercut crops. This one is bright as a supernova, sweet and complex, bursting with citrus and honey, pretty much a quintessential washed Ethiopian. So what are the flavor notes?
Mandarin. Loud as a Fender Tweed. After that? More mandarin. Then? Yet more mandarin. That tangerine tapestry mugs alongside a hit of limeade, not just regular old lime juice, a libation-sweet cocktail. But the best part of this coffee is its flash of honey mead; it's a syrupy, ever-so-slightly boozy tone that's as elevating as it is unmistakable. If you've been looking for a bright, complex, citrusy sweet washed Ethiopian coffee, you can do no better.
