With a light mouthfeel and hints of vanilla the Ethiopian Gera is a local favorite. These beans come straight from the Ethiopian highlands where they are grown in the shade with no chemical fertilizers or insecticides. Then they are dried on raised beds in the Ethiopian sun on an estate dedicated to sustainability. Owned by a family whose father has been in the business for 30 years, this estate cares about its employees, even providing free education to their children. The sweetness of this coffee comes from more than just the flavors.
