Teshome Gemechu is an amazing coffee. It is every single year, which is why we bring it back time and again. It has been so reliably good that we make room for it on our menu before we even taste it. Smallholder farmers in Gedeb grow the 74110 varietal, which traces its roots to the cloud forests of Illubabor (the birthplace of coffee), as well as Dega and Wolisho varietals. The farmers bring their cherry to the Teshome Gemechu washing station where it's sorted and washed. Most of these farmers have small semi-forest lots or trees from their gardens, and bringing their coffee to this washing station offers them an opportunity to make more money for the high quality cherries they grow.
