Coffee Story:

Finally, this long awaited coffee has arrived! As coffee is a seasonal crop, it is normal for roasters of specialty coffee to run out of certain offers before the fresh crop arrivals land at port, and are ultimately available in the retail space. To fans of the natty coffee, the spring in your step is now back.

This coffee is grown by family owned farms located near the town of Banko Fuafuate. This town is within the Yirgacheffe district of the Gedeo zone in Ethiopia. These contributing farmers deliver their ripe cherries to the washing station (wet mill) located in Banko Fuafuate, immediately after they are harvested. The coffee is then carefully sorted and arranged on raised beds for drying. The raised bed design aids with proper air circulation and temperature control for optimum drying conditions. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage or uneven drying to the coffee cherry.

Further definition of naturally processed coffees, can be explained by the coffee cherry being harvested and then sun dried with the fruit still intact to the outer surface of the bean. Once the outside fruit is dried to the desired moisture, the coffee is then milled, removing the dried cherry and exposing the coffee seed. This process is responsible for the fruity character and is the original processing technique used since the beginning of time in the birth place of coffee, Ethiopia. We are offering this coffee at two roast levels to appease all appetites. Cheers ~
