Golden Bean Winner: Ethiopia Chelelektu

Meet our third Golden Bean winner: Our Ethiopia Washed Yirgacheffe Chelelektu Torea. Our roaster says this is one of the most balanced coffees he has ever roasted. The Golden Bean judges agreed, giving it a clean sweep of medals for its quality as a pour over filter, espresso and milk-based espresso drinks.

The Chelelektu really shines with its big floral notes. Sweetness, body, acidity, and finish all work together to create a remarkable cup of coffee. Expect lots of jasmine with peach and pear fruit notes along with a honey like sweetness.

This coffee reminds us of a well-brewed jasmine green tea with a bit of honey.

The Ethiopia Chelelektu is available by the bag in our stores and online. It’s also on brew bar and as our single origin espresso. Our tip – try this in a cortado to taste its winning qualities in a milk-based drink.
