Wush Wush is a rare, low-yield variety founded in Southwest Ethiopia with the original transplants arriving in South America some 30 years ago. This offering comes from our long-term relationship with Hacienda Cafetera La Pradera in Colombia. Processed using the honey process, this rare variety was picked at 28 degrees Brix for maximum ripeness and sweetness. The whole cherries were then fermented anaerobically.
The result is one of the most complex coffees on our menu currently!
Notes from our sourcing partners at Ally Coffee:
"Mr. Héctor Daza originally began transforming the family farm into a coffee paradise by planting diverse timber and fruit trees, creating a shade canopy for the different varieties of coffee they would grow. This was the beginning of a lifelong commitment to environmental stewardship. The farm now includes anaco, bucaro, guamo, oak, avocado, tangerine, banana, and many other tree varieties, providing plenty of shade to the crop. Oscar Daza, third generation, now assumes leadership of La Pradera. The focus remains on sustainable land use, organic practices, and respect for the farm and the natural world that it inhabits."
This Wush Wush variety is grown in the Santander region of Colombia at about 1,775 meters above sea level before being processed using an anaerobic honey fermentation.
