Every Coffee Has A Story

Originally found in Ethiopia, Wush Wush is a low-yield, rare variety that has become popular over the past few years. Wushwush is a small area in southwest Ethiopia, not far from the renowned growing regions of Jimma and Sidama. Wushwush is known for its fertile highlands, where rich vibrant teas grow, with sensory similarities like those of Wush Wush coffee.

Our Wush Wush is natural processed and fermented for 120-140 hours before being dried. The combination of the extended fermentation plus the natural processing method results in a coffee that is very fruity, candy-like, and wonderfully foral.

Amazing complexity, syrupy body, and lingering sweetness in the cup…we can’t wait for you to try!

Typically, coffee is fermented for up to 3 days after it’s picked. This coffee was fermented for 4-6 days. Only ripe cherries are selected and laid out on African beds for sorting. The cherries are then put in PP bags and allowed to naturally ferment for six days and then put back out to the drying beds for about 12-15 days.

Israel Degafa is the owner of the Kerchanshe Trading Company, the largest producer and exporter in Ethiopia. Better production means higher quality coffee and that Degafa can sell his coffee well above the minimum rate that is set by the government. This ensures that all farmers are paid fair, livable wages, and gives 10% of the profit from Kerchanshe to local non-profits that benefit the immediate community. These benefits include clean drinking water, electricity, the building of roads, and schooling for local children.

Words of Wisdom

Quick Answers!

Are these coffees flavored?

Nope! Coffee is super complex and can be affected by alot of different things. Tasting notes refer to the subtle reference to flavors that deviate from your standard idea of coffee. For example, you may taste a slight sweetness- a bit like strawberry.

I put milk in my coffee. Any suggestions?

Stop that! Just kidding.

If you enjoy your coffee with a bit of milk or creamer, we suggest choosing a darker roast or a coffee with a heavier body. Typically, lighter roasts will not be able to handle milk. In other words, you will lose the coffee-ness if you put milk in a light roast.

What happened to that one coffee that I liked?!

Coffee is a plant! That means that crops can change from season to season. We regularly sample and roast new coffees to make sure we have the highest quality bean for your cup! To us, we would rather retire "McJoeJoe's Roast" if the beans have reached the end of their life. If you are missing your old favorite roast, reach out to us and we can help you find your new favorite!
