WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF COFFEE: A message from Lee @ Quietly: Magnolia is my love letter to coffee. It delights in those surprisingly fruity cups with bright and sparkling acidity. It always seeks out sweetness paired with stunning clarity and vibrancy. It is all the best aspects of modern coffee and works to remind me that the possibilities for a good cup are endless when forever seek coffees that are in bloom.
Qirtira Goyo is a village which houses a community of producers in Dimtu Werda. It is in the Hambela Wamena woreda of the Guji Zone. Relatively young trees produce cherries with those hallmark big guji notes and are processed a the local Gemede Dekama washing station. This is a new offering on the Quietly menu and its a stunner!
FLAVOUR: The cup is full of lots brightness, with raspberry and blackberry giving way to tangerine and elegant florals. For a washed Guji there is a surprisingly big body that dovetails with its lush and thick wildflower honey flavours.
