Even among the legendary players of Ethiopia, Moplaco’s Heleanna Georgalis and her father, Yiannis, stand out. Since her father's passing, Heleanna, has taken the reigns of the Moplaco Washing Station with gusto.
Through years of hard work and meticulous focus, she produces some of the brightest, most complex coffees we’ve ever tasted.
This “Kenya process,” which was inspired by the dry fermentation practices of Kenya, in order to preserve water. Motivated by the same concern, Heleanna’s Kenya process coffees are depulped, then double fermented in cement tanks for 72 hrs before drying, bringing the same cleanliness along with a distinct spice character.
Roasting days: Proud Mary roast Monday-Friday during normal business hours. To ensure freshness of coffee, best to order early in the week as postal services and couriers do not operate on weekends.
Orders: placed by 8.00am PST will be roasted and dispatched the same day. If you are ordering on a Friday, and order after 8.00am then your coffee will be roasted the following business day - Monday.
