About this coffee

A direct replacement of our beloved Gedeb, Worka Sakro is the new washed Ethiopian on the menu. In fact, this coffee is also from the Gedeb district, located in the southern part of the coveted coffee region of Yirgacheffe. It was grown by a community of small-lot farmers from the village of Sakro, near the town of Worka. Many local farmers use "Worka" when naming their lots, as it is often associated to and well-known for a region-specific flavour profile.

Roasted on the lighter side, expect a perfumy, juicy and floral cup, with notes reminiscent of blueberries up front, hints of green apple mid-palate, medium-low acidity, medium body, and a black licorice finish.

Additional info about this coffee

Mijane Woresa, who has worked in coffee for more than 30 years, recently established an export company along with his sons - The Mijane washing station is where our Worka Sakro was processed. Their involvement in the community is deep rooted and constant, and they are committed to a positive social impact. Mijane offers harvest training, and established seasonal cherry collection sites, local delivery points, and have contributed to road construction projects in order to reduce and facilitate travel for their farmers and small producers. A lot of the farmers that Mijane works with also learn composting and pruning techniques, which is very rare in Ethiopia. This contributes to the high standards of the network's production, as well as reducing the environmental impact of their activities.

Excellent !

Julie Gauthier
Best coffee brand ever!

The coffee taste of Ambros is unique and so so good for any fan of coffee out there. I love this brand, their communication, fast shipping and recommendation.

Great beans for pour over

The kind folks at Ambros recommended Gedeb from Ethiopian for my new pour over brewer. Very happy. Complex and clean.

Quel café

Le café en soi est parfait, mais le goût thé aux pêches est assez incroyable. Le café semble avoir cette “viscosité” surette des pêches.
