Hailing from the town of Ch’elelek’tu in the Kochere region of Yirgacheffe, the Chelelektu is a washed coffee with all the classic notes we find so highly intoxicating from coffees of this region. This is a washed heirloom variety grown at 1850-1950 MASL. Ripe cherries are delivered to mill where cherries are graded, sorted, de-pulped and then fermented under water between 36-48 hours (Ethiopian fermentation times are generally longer than other African countries, as temperatures are generally colder in the highlands of Ethiopia).
This chelelektu beans is everything we search for in a classic Yirgacheffe which super clean, fruity, and complex. Over the years, Chelelektu coffee has known for the consistency of the quality. At Chelelektu, the parchment is dried on raised beds under shade up for 10 to 12 days until the beans’ interior reaches 12 percent moisture. This gentle drying results a concentrated cup and long shelf life.
