Ayla is a washing station in the renowned Sidama region of Ethiopia. Named for the niece of the station’s owners, Ayla sits at a staggering 1950 m.a.s.l! This extremely high elevation gives the coffee of surrounding farms a clarity and sweetness seen in few other places on earth. Being the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia is home to many undocumented varieties that are not known outside their local municipalities. Producers know these varieties by their local names and have been breeding them selectively for generations, until recently however, their distinctiveness has never been catalogued. Thanks to work done by the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre (JARC) much progress has been made on identifying and separating the best and most disease resistant landraces. Furthermore, we can now get more insight into the specific strains in our microlots; this coffee from Ayla for instance, features JARC varieties 74112 and 747110. This is a super clean and vibrant natural processed coffee with notes of black tea, kiwifruit and lychee. Very delicate and highly recommended as a filter-style brew.
