The residents of Bersoma kebele in the Gomma district of western Ethiopia are descendants of the old Gomma kingdom. A kingdom that existed in this region until the latter half of the nineteenth century before becoming part of modern-day Ethiopia. One of the five kingdoms of the area surrounding the mighty Gibe river, the residents of Gomma had a reputation, even then, of being good farmers.
The Biftu Gudina Cooperative is one of Limmu’s most quality-driven grower groups that produce grade-1 washed Limu’s. The Coop has 296 members, of which 86 are women. And the Coop also has a washing station and pulper to produce the incoming cherries from members.
Biftu Gudina takes the following steps to ensure that its coffee is of the highest quality possible. 80 percent of the cooperative’s produce is Limu grade-1 coffee and the rest is grade-2; The mill only accepts coffee from members (who are all trained in industry-standard farming practices); its pulpers are modern; coffee is never soaked longer than necessary; skin-drying table prevents damage to the seeds from too much exposure to UV rays from the sun too soon; and finally shade nets are used so the beans dry slowly, preserving as much flavour as possible.
This dark roast Ethiopian coffee is bold & smooth, good to brew on the filter for blackberries & floral hint morning cuppa! It makes a jammy espresso & also pairs well with milk for a delightful flat white.
