From the Roaster: Ethiopian ‘Banko Gotiti’ is here and we are excited! This naturally-processed coffee is juicy and silky in body and it will delight you with flavors of pink lemonade, blueberries, honey, and whipped cream. This coffee has so much natural sweetness and a lovely floral aroma - it has an almost elegant quality. If you’re looking for something fruity, this is it, and more.
The producers of this coffee, Banko Gotiti, are a small cooperative of 300 members based in the Yirga Cheffe area. They were founded in 2012 when they branched off from a co-op we’ve worked with in the past called Worka.
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
