Pitaya fruit, passion fruit, pear
An absolutely astonishing pour over. Threw it on the Kalita Wave and was instantly impressed with first sips. As it cools, clarity comes to the cup in form of fruit forward notes and light, bright acidity. I got flavors of exotic, citrusy fruits like passion fruit, dragon fruit, and even pineapple and pear. Mouthfeel is tea-like. Not ideal for dark roast drinkers or French press goers. Really shines on pour over methods and drip coffee.
Hambela Dabaye is from longtime Guji coffee farmer and mill manager, Kedir Hassan. He is the older brother to Esmael Hassan. “Dabaye” is the name of the kebele where this Hambela station is located (a town, more or less).
Kedir is an incredibly proficient and capable engineer as well as coffee farmer, and built the entire Hambela station in one season. “You wouldn’t know this, as it’s visually apparent everything was built with high processing standards, and with efficiency in mind.” Of course he did not complete Hambela on his own, and thanks to his long standing connection with the the people in this area, he had much needed community support.
