New Coffee for May - Chelbesa, Ethiopia 

Would you like the best coffee roaster in the UK to select your beans every month? Each month Nick Mabey (UK Roasting Champion 2018) sources one new coffee for you to try each month, and hand roasts it to bring out the finest flavours. From the first delivery, you'll begin to discover a whole world of speciality coffee...

In the recent months, we've tasted coffees from Honduras, Nicaragua, Uganda, Kenya and Guatemala. Where's next... ?



  • Origin: Ethiopia 
  • Region: Chelbesa, Yirga Cheffe
  • Varietal: Mixed
  • Process: Natural

In the Gedeo zone of the Gedeb district, Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi-forest vegetation structure, encompassing false banana trees, as well as shade-grown coffee trees - Chelbesa is a great example coffee growing agro-ecology.

SNAP Specialty Coffee built their new wet mill in 2019 in a small hamlet called Danche within the Chelbesa Village with the hope of reaching out to purchasing exclusively red cherries from the nearby farmers in Chelbesa Village. Their ambition became a reality after completion of the project.

In this lot, cherries are received and sorted with the help of a series of flotation tank that separates all under ripe and immature cherries. During the process of flotation the cherries get cleaned with fresh water before being placed on raised African drying beds for a period of 28 to 35 days. 

Both refreshing and sweet, this coffee is a fruit bomb, loaded with flavour notes of blueberry, raspberry, peach and lemon iced tea. Perfect served hot, or as a cold brew with ice in the warmer days ahead.
