The Wush Wush variety originated in Ethiopia. Wush Wush is an area in southwest Ethiopia. Similar to Geisha, another famous coffee from the same country, this variety arrived to South America around 30 years ago.
Today, it can be found in Colombia, where it develops fruitier, delicate and floral cup profiles that consumers expect from these rarer, and sought-after varieties.
As with most of the washed processes, after the collection and selection of the fruits in the appropriate conditions, the pulping is done and then the fermentation, which on this occasion was between 15-20 hours with the Fermaestro (a tool to achieve an adequate fermentation).
Wush Wush has a unique cup profile, this coffee is incredibly smooth with floral aromas.
