Prototype is a seasonal espresso coffee that is all about intense sweetness and bright acidity with dominant fruit and floral flavours. This season we have gone for a single origin, Ethiopian Hambella Washed.
The Hambella farm sits at around 1,900 meters above sea level and cultivates Heirloom Ethiopian varieties that have flourished in this landscape for thousands of years. The farm now covers about 200 hectares and is a good source of employment for the local area with 28 full time staff and about 700 during harvest time. Part of Hambella’s vision has always been to improve the recognition of Ethiopian coffee and help the local community. They now have a state of the art lab which is the first in Africa to be fully SCA certified, not only does this help them to produce amazing coffee but they also provide pre and post-harvest training here for others farmers in the area.
Originally only producing natural coffees, Hambella now produces excellent washed coffees using an eco-pulper to remove the flesh. This removes the need for the fermentation stage and produces extremely clean beans for a much lower water usage thanks to an in built water re-circulation system. With perfume-like florals up front followed by zingy lime, a bit of hops and intense sweetness it has everything we love about Ethiopian coffees!
