Ethiopian Rocko Mountain

This years Rocko Mountain is absolutely fantastic! If you're into fruity Ethiopian naturals look no further!

This is a delicious natural process coffee and is organically grown. This years Rocko Mountain is from Chelbesa, in the Yirgacheffe region. The importers on this one select a coffee from Yirgacheffe every year which fits a specific profile to be sold under the name "Rocko Mountain". 


Located in the Gedeo zone of the Gedeb district, Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi-forest vegetation structure encompassing false banana trees as well as shade-grown coffee trees, Chelbesa is a great example of best coffee growing agro-ecology.

SNAP Specialty Coffee built their new wet mill in 2019 in a small hamlet called Danche within the Chelbesa Village with the hope of reaching out to purchasing exclusively red cherries from the nearby farmers in Chelbesa Village. Their ambition became a reality after completion of the project.

The fermentation tanks of the wet mill were built using ceramic which will help bring clarity in the coffee that they process as well as help speed up the fermentation through the heat retained by the ceramic.

This lot has been put together with the production of 495 smallholders farmers delivering their cherries to the mill, in the area the most common type of soil is redbrown, a particularly fertile type, rich in iron and with high acidity content.

This particular lot has been processed as a traditional natural from the cherry deliveries that constitute the second part of the harvest.

Cherries are received and sorted with the help of a series of floatation tank that separates all floaters (under ripe cherry) and immature cherry, during the process of flotation the cherry gets cleaned with fresh water before being placed on raised African drying beds for a period of 28 to 35 days.

This coffee is wonderful as filter/cafetiere and is a bright zingy delicious espresso, and great with milk!
