This lot from Damo Village was processed with an anaerobic fermentation technique native to wine-making that slowly draws out the flavour in each individual cherry as the CO2 penetrates the skins to affect unique chemical reactions. After controlled fermentation, the cherries are resurrected from their gassy chambers and laid to rest on raised beds.
Damo Village is located in the Bensa woreda of the Sidama Zone of Ethiopia. Ardent Coffee Export processed coffee at a washing station where contributing local coffee farmers grow their coffee at 1,800 - 2,000 meters above sea level and categorized as “A” according to the current Ethiopian coffee designation.
Established in 2008, fresh red cherries are processed by washed and natural (dry) methods as well as experimental methods like honey, anaerobic, and carbonic maceration. Training is also provided to farmers with emphasis on processing methods, re-using organic materials and fertilization, and water sanitation."
This coffee has a very intense fruitiness & sweetness. With vibrant aromatics of apricot & grape candy sweetness, finish with a cherry winey twist. A very expressive & refreshing coffee, best enjoy in a hot afternoon.
