Floral / Tropical Fruit / Milk Chocolate
Our second natural Ethiopia is from a sister mill of Bombe – Shantawene in the Bensa District of Sidama.
The Co-op has 1500 members that bring their cherry to this mill, growing coffee between 1990 and 2190 masl. This lot is made up of varieties 74221 and 74212 which are Coffee berry disease-resistant varieties selected by researchers in 1974. At the mill, the cherry is floated to sort under-ripes and then dried on raised beds for 14 to 18 days before being transported to Addis for final sorting. This coffee is somehow familiar and yet different. It reminds us of the Bombe but with floral, tropical, and sweet milk chocolate notes
