King’s Prize is a fruit-forward coffee with floral aromatics and a round pleasant sweetness. It provides a medium-bodied cup with a long sweet finish.
This coffee is an homage to the Ethiopian kingdom as the birthplace of the coffee tree. What better gift to award a king who has everything, but with the fruits of his own vast land.
This coffee is sourced from small family-owned farms located in Gelana and Abaya woredas. These two woredas are located in the Boreda Zone within the Oromia Region, Ethiopia. Ripe cherries are carefully sorted and pulped. After pulping, the beans are fermented for 36 to 48 hours and then washed. The wet beans in parchment are placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2 to 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process. Depending on the weather, the beans are dried for 10 to 12 days until the moisture in the coffee beans is reduced to 11.5 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
