It wasn't too long ago that we had Chelbesa on our menu, but let me assure you this is a totally different coffee even if it's the same. I know that doesn't make much sense, but, thanks to our freezer friends here in Portland, seasonality has taken somewhat of a backseat. This coffee is the same coffee we were roasting back at the beginning of the year with the only difference being that this is fresh crop. We were previously roasting a coffee we froze as soon as it arrived stateside, and because the freezer is able to achieve such low temperatures, it tasted as clean and fresh as the day it had arrived. This lot of Chelbesa was one of our first to arrive in the warehouse this year, and we couldn't be more excited. There's tons of florality and classic Ethiopian flavors of lemon and black tea. This is what we want to be drinking all summer long.
