Wondo Worka Cooperative Video – Complements of Stumptown Coffee Roastery

The Wondo Worka Cooperative is home of one of our favorite Ethiopian Yirgacheffes from the Sidamo region and is quickly becoming a favorite of many in the specialty coffee industry, who have come to love this beautiful cup with lingering floral aromatics and notes of fruit and berries.

Ken David describes the cup as having:

Intense, bright aroma: tart coffee cherry, honey, a hint of fir, flowers. In the cup tartly sweet acidity, honeyish mouthfeel and flavor, with molasses, pipe tobacco and deep, rose-like floral notes. Very sweet, fruit-saturated, perfectly clean finish… A dramatically light roast liberates both acidity and sweetness and allows an unusual honey, molasses and rose-like floral character full expression.

With reviews like this it’s no wonder that the Wondo Worka Cooperative has became a favorite source for many of the specialty coffee industry’s leading roasters including: Counter Culture Coffee, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Caffe Pronto Roastery and many more.

The following is a video we have, complements of Stumptown Coffee Roasters, of the Wondo Worka Cooperative in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. We’re a big fan of the work happening with this cooperative and how the specialty coffee industry has rallied behind them. This is a cup worth tracking down and if you can’t find it in your local cafe we suggest tracking down your own bag on line.

We recommend a bag of Caffe Pronto’s Wondo Worka which recently received a 92 point rating by Ken David on Coffee Review. Caffe Pronto Roastery is located in Annapolis, Maryland and be found in many fine cafes. You can also order your own bag directly at: http://www.caffepronto.com
