Within Yirgacheffe, you’ll find the Gersi kebele, a small area with dirt roads that wrap around the Naga Singage mountain. The mountain is a place where reconciliation ceremonies, called “Songo”, are performed. The community would climb the Naga Singage mountain to seek consult and resolve through the elders. The elders would discuss the disputes and find solutions for the problems of the community.
Several years ago, the Aricha washing station was resurrected and has since become a hub for the Yirgacheffe region. Last year's Onancho Ethiopian also came from this washing station.
Yirgacheffe is the gift that keeps on giving. This is our third offering from there this year. We love the honey sweetness of this one. Florals, citrus, and peach fruit linger here.
