About this coffee :

Privately owned communal wetmill in Danbi Uddo – Shakiso, collecting cherries from various smallholders. It’s a brand new wet mill in Shakiso that opened in 2014. They are already producing 8 containers of washed coffees and 7 containers of naturals. The grades will vary, and we are selecting the grade 1’s that also meets our expectations on the flavour attributes.  

About 850 smallholder farmers delivering tiny amounts of cherries daily to the wet miller.

On average farmers are having a farm size of fewer than 1 hectares. Most coffees are organic by default. Organic compost is common, pruning less common. A farmer can typically have less than 1500 trees pr hectare, and 1 tree is typically producing cherries equal to less than 100 - 200 grams of green coffee.

A mix of local variety’s. Such as native coffee of forest origin transferred to family smallholder plots. The varieties are referred to collectively as Ethiopian Heirloom, which is a myriad of local native Typica hybrids and new improved varietals based on the old strains.

Whole ripe cherries are hand sorted for unripe and overripe by the farmers before they go into production. They are pulped by a disk pulper and graded in the pulper by density: The parchment is then fermented underwater for 24-48 hours, depending on the weather conditions. After which graded in the washing channels by water flow that separates the coffee by density. It's then soaked 12-24 hrs in fresh, clean water before it’s moved to the drying tables

Skin drying the first hours under shade. The parchments are dried in the sun for about 10-12 days, depending on the weather conditions, on African drying beds. Coffees are covered in shade nets during midday and at night.

This natural coffee is a fruit bomb. Vibrant blueberry and apricot fruitiness, pair with white flower floral aftertaste. A coffee that will make your eyes shine bright with bursting flavours.
