About this coffee :

Shantawene village is situated between the village of Bombe and Bombe mountain. The producers are part of a member organization consisting of 667 producers in various parts of the mountain range, which also include producers from Bombe and Keramo.

The Bonara river plays a big part in the ability to accomplish clean, washed coffees at the Abore site. Water is filtered and stocked as a reserve to refresh the fermentation tanks a few times throughout the long fermentation process.

After fermentation, the coffee is washed through channels and agitated to work loose some of the sticky mucilage left over after the natural yeasts and microbes have broken it down.

At this point, the parchment coffee is moved to raised mesh beds to drain and begin the drying process, which lasts about twelve days on average. This process yields incredibly clean and floral coffees, which are delicate and razor-sharp in taste profile.

This Ethiopian coffee puts a smile on your face. Vibrant fruity floral notes of rose & mandarin orange, fruit tea sweetness, finishes with a refreshing citrusy finish. A lovely lively coffee perfect for after lunch cuppa.
