African Heirloom Varietals - Wush Wush


Our first ever Wush Wush offering grown in the lush volcanic highlands of Valle Del Cauca, Colombia. This unique cultivar is much like Geisha showcasing exotic floral notes and exciting fruit tones with a deeper more resonant body - plush, juicy and full. Wush Wush is a rare and extremely low-yield cultivar of Arabica that finds its botanical origins in the heart of Africa; Ethiopia. It has been cultivated in the Americas for around thirty years however due to its low yields are often very difficult to find.
