Those of you who have been part of the GWGC clan for a while now will probably know that we've not bought from Aracelly before, so we are super excited to share our first-time purchases with you all - and in classic GWGC fashion, we have opted to do things a little differently, so are incredibly proud to offer three separate lots to showcase different processing methods and varieties.
This washed wonder brings the body with big chewy feels complimented by that citric acidity we love to find in the cup.

So, are you sitting comfortably?
