 650 smallholder producers living in the Gedeo Zone of Ethiopia’s Nationalities, and Peoples' Region grow the coffee cherries that make up this lot. The indigenous coffee variety flourishes at high elevation with a unique terroir ideal for growing coffee. After harvesting they take their cherries to the Kochere Mill owned by Matewos Ersemo. Once purchased from the farmers the mill sorts and depulps the cherries before a two day fermentation. The beans are then placed on raised drying beds and turned every few hours to start the drying process. Twelve to fifteen days later when they are at an ideal moisture level the drying process is completed.

Our light roast is designed to highlight the unique attributes in this coffee the ideal growing conditions and careful process have instilled in it. We taste notes of honey, magnolia, peach, honeydew, lemon, and lavender.
