This coffee from Bekele Belayecho farm in Southern Ethiopia has a complex and fruity flavour profile with strong floral aroma and notes of lychee, blueberry and caramel. Careful natural processing brings out fruit notes and gives a silky mouthfeel but with less of the funk that you might find with some naturals.

The Farm

Producer Buriso Amaje’s lush 8 hectare farm is located at very high altitudes between 2150-2300masl in Segera Kebele where coffee can thrive. These higher altitudes, where temperatures are cooler and cherries mature slower, help develop more flavour complexity, something that is evident in this coffee. Shade grown in rich, loam soil, coffee is interplanted with with Albizia, Enset, Sesbania, avocado and banana. This helps to provide a healthier ecosystem for the coffee to grow in and plants and wildlife in the area.

Processing

At harvest time coffee is picked and sorted by hand in floatation tanks. It is then sun dried on African raised beds for 18-20 days. Initially coffee is laid out in a single layer, then piled up to 10cm thick by the last 2 days. Cherries are turned regularly to ensure even drying and controlled fermentation. Moisture level is monitored and the coffee is finally hulled before making its long journey to us.
