It's difficult for us to find a better adjective than elegance when describing Sonkolle Kallato in the cup. Green Spring has employed a delicate restraint to the processing of the coffee, allowing for the classic fruity notes of berries to shine, but not overpower the tasting profile. What sticks out most to us is an pervasive profile of honey, both in flavor and texture, and an overall smooth, clean cup. As it cools, we savor the delicate finish of a floral and spiced bouquet.
A super team of sorts, Green Spring is a collaboration between Turi Waje (affectionately known as The King of Guji) and Mike Mamo of Addis Exporter. These long time friends and colleagues purchased land amidst some of the most coveted coffee farming areas in Ethiopia and began purchasing ripe coffee cherries from small independent farmers in a village named Sonkolle Kallato. These fully traceable lots have been meticulously processed in small batches and the resulting quality is undeniably exceptional. We are proud to be among the first roasters in the world to represent Green Spring coffee and we look forward to supporting this project with each yearly harvest.
We're roasting Sonkolle Kallato fast and light, with minimal development time and a low final temperature to showcase the beautiful, delicate flavor within. This is within a few degrees of the lightest roasts we offer.
