Gelgelu Edema is produced by Gelgelu Edema and processed as a separate lot at the Worka Cooperative where Gelgelu Adema is a member. The Worka cooperative is located in the southern district of Gedeb in the Gedeo Zone. Gelgelu Edema is part of the single producer project developed jointly between the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union and Royal coffee. The project was initiated in 2012 with a handful of ‘Model’ producers from cooperatives organized under the YCFCU umbrella who have been willing to work with a rigorous set of processing standards, regular farm visits from the Royal team, and higher cup qualifications. In exchange, producers earn higher quality premiums based on the sale of their individual lots. The popularity of the single producer project has led to increased participation and an opportunity to showcase more coffee from the growing numbers of small and talented producers who continue to work in the cooperative system.
This coffee was fermented in full cherries and dried naturally under the sun on raised beds.
Gelgelu Edema has balance, luxurious silky body, intense aromas and acidity. We are tasting blueberry, grape juice, blackberry, and caramel.
