Ethiopia Natural Kembata Grade 1

coffee producers with specialty coffee cherries drying on raised beds in Ethiopia

This lot comes to us from a farm in Durame Village in Kembata, Ethiopia. At 2100 meters above sea level, the soil is extremely fertile and ideal for growing high-quality coffee beans. Farmers incorporate a 36-48 hour fermentation process in the wet mill. Then, they use raised beds to dry the beans under the sun. The resulting coffee is an extremely complex cup marked with notes of blueberry and strawberry.
