Odo Shakiso is a spotless coffee. Wafer cookie, brown sugar, and orchid on the nose lead into an immaculate cup defined by citrus, stone fruit, and milk chocolate notes.
Southern Ethiopia is home to some of the most coveted coffees the world over. More so than anywhere else in the world, coffee from this region is often talked about in terms of appellation, much like old world wines. Yirga Cheffe, Kochere, Guji, Shakiso, Uraga... these names evoke flavor profiles and taste experiences that are a result of plant genetics interacting with the soil, climate, and elevation in which they were grown. This lot, from the Odo Shakiso Woreda of Guji, so wonderfully demonstrates why this region is so coveted.
