ETHIOPIA LEKEMPTI GR5
Ethiopia is the “homeland” of all coffees.
Lekempti is the name assigned to all coffee that is traded through the market town of Nekemte. This town is found in western Ethiopia, in the East Welega Zone of the Oromia Region. The name Lekempti is often used interchangeably with “Gimbi”, named after a small woreda just west of Lekempti, located in the West Welega Zone. Lekempti coffee is known for its pleasant acidity and healthy body reminiscent of Ethiopian Harrar Longberry coffee, also exhibiting a slight yet distinct fruity flavour.
Coffee in Ethiopia is graded based on processing methods used: Grade 1 & 2 for wet processing (where the coffee cherry pulp is removed immediately after picking) and Grades 3, 4 and 5 for dry processing (where coffee is picked from the tree and dried in the open sun until the fruit pulp becomes dehydrated, and then pulped.)
