Banko Gotiti, a washed process coffee from Ethiopia, is roasted by Camber in Bellingham, WA. Their tasting notes are hops, pineapple, and lavender. We chose to brew this coffee on the Kone with a 1:15 ratio of coffee to water.
40g coffee — medium grind
600g water — just off boil

A classic washed Ethiopian coffee. When hot, the coffee is quite herbaceous — notes of fresh hops and lavender, as the tasting notes suggest, but also lemongrass. As it cools, a cane sugar sweetness develops, with delicate fruit flavors — we tasted Meyer lemon and watermelon.
Everything you would expect from a washed Ethiopian coffee. It didn't blow our minds, but a solid daily drinker, which offers more sweetness and fruit flavors as the cup cools.
