I’m excited about Chelbessa, Danche. I first visited Danche on my trip in January 2019 to fuel my love affair with the coffees of Gedeb. In January of 2020, I tasted the first lots of the 2019/20 season. I was actually a bit dismayed. They were soft and a bit underwhelming, however I kept tasting the production throughout the season and, to my pleasant surprise, the late harvesting lots were really excellent. This is to say that all coffee named Danche that you’ll find through various sources is simply not created equal!
