In February 2018 the Utopian team met Ture Waji, former manager of the Guji Highlands farm in the eastern Guji Zone. Ture now operates his own company: Dambi Uddo. Ture is a forward-thinking coffee farmer who is not only producing outstanding coffee lots, but also focuses on environmental stewardship by planting new trees and producing only organic coffees. This means no pesticides or chemicals which damages ecosystems. Additionally, Ture is working to identify genetic varieties of the heirloom coffee shrubs growing in Guji. This lots happens to contain Serto, one of the most common Ethiopian varieties available.
This lot is a full natural process, and you can taste it in the cup. Like our previous Ethiopia natural offering, the Sewana, Korommi is tasting extremely bright, juicy, and fruity. Ture’s meticulous sorting and processing has resulted in one of the cleanest and most consistent dry-processed coffees we’ve tasted!
In the cup, expect dense dark chocolate flavors paired with lively fruity tones of berries and melons with a signature floral finish.
