With the vibrancy of fresh plum and citrus, the lightness of tea, and the sweetness of honey it's no wonder this is one of our favorite coffees!
This coffee comes to us from Hambela Wamena, which is a district of Guji that borders the Gedeb region of Yirgacheffe. This area is known for its ripe cherry selection by farmers and good elevations.
Benti Nenka is the village inside Wamena where this coffee is grown and brought to the Guduba washing station. Here traditional methods of fermentation are still utilized where the coffee is fully submerged in water for 36 to 48 hours and water changed frequently to ensure clean water and no unpleasant flavors in the coffee. After fermenting, the coffee is dried on raised beds for 10-14 days.
This washing station is run by Eyasu Worasa, a native of Dilla in Southern Ethiopia, who has 12 plus years of experience. Their craft truly comes through with this coffee.
