Yabitu Koba

A Spectacular Ethiopian Coffee To Enjoy This Summer

This spectacular Ethiopia coffee is our first reserve series of the summer. Yabitu Koba is a small community located at the northern tip of Uraga in the Guji Zone of Ethiopia. This lot is produced by Feku Jabril, a coffee visionary in northern Uraga who also works with farmers in the communities of Goro Dimutu and Layo Terega.  Until recently, Ethiopian coffees from Guji were classified and sold as Sidamo (Sidama). Now, Guji is recognized as its own, unique producing region. The Woreda District of Guji where Yabitu Koba resides, is located at a staggering 2100-2270 meters above sea level. This, paired with the meticulous processing and site management by Feku Jabril, account for the exceptional quality that we are getting from this ethical coffee.

Hana Asarat, the washing station in the community of Yabitu Koba, utilizes the underwater fermentation that is traditional in Ethiopia. The coffee is fermented 36-48 hours, washed and then soaked in clean water. After soaking, the coffee is dried on raised beds for approximately 10-14 days.

The aromatics of the Yabitu Koba are sweet and floral. Initial roasts are bursting with jasmine, honeysuckle and strawberry. In the cup the honeysuckle continues, complimented with the juicy flavors of watermelon and fruit punch. This coffee is lively with a delicate body, and is a beautiful representation of the Guji growing region of Ethiopia.

The bottom line:

The Yabitu Koba is exceptional, and is the perfect addition for Amavida’s summer lineup of ethically sourced, reserve coffees. This floral, fruity and lively Guji will be on everyone’s mind this season.
