Libation Espresso is a rotating seasonal espresso created specifically to present a juicy, fruit-foward espresso experience. Winey, even.
Summer 2018 Libation: Ethiopia Layo Taraga
This coffee falls into the “SUPER sweet with bergamot aromatics, sparkling acidity, and hints of stone fruit” category (read: juicy, but not a berry bomb). It was grown by 500 smallholder farmers each of whom own about 1/2 hectare of land around the town of Haro Wachu. These farmers all deliver their ripe cherries to the Layo Taraga washing station which was founded in the year 2000.
