From Morgon Coffee Roasters:
In December 2019 we left Gothenburg for our first trip to Ethiopia with Morgon. During our week there we traversed the birthplace of coffee and it’s majestic mountains. We came to the Chelbesa station by motorcycle due to heavy rains and the contrast from our dockside roastery right at sea level to the incredible 2100 meters was stunning. Here the producers neighbouring semi-forrest lots and gardens had some of the most even and beautifully deep red coffee cherries we saw all week. They were also some of the sweetest and most delicious ones we’ve ever tried, and the attention to detail while they were being sorted at the station was second to none. Adding all of this together, we just knew we had to try their coffee once it was processed, milled and ready for us! When the samples came to Gothenburg and were just as tasty as the cherries we had we were so excited to jump on the phone to reserve as much as we could.
