ALTITUDE: 1920-2020 masl
HARVEST: JANUARY 2021
NOTES: Honey, Orange Blossom, Saturn Peach
A very floral coffee with notes of orange blossom and lavender. We can also find sweet notes such as muscovado sugar and flower honey. On the palate, it is juicy with a honeyed acidity and a clean, floral finish with a note that reminds us of Paraguayan.
We are happy to say that the Ethiopian coffee season is here and this washed batch from the Bombe station is one of our favourites.
The Bombe washing station, also known as Abore, is named after Bombe mountains in the Sidama region, located south from the washing station. Sidama is located in the south of the country and coffee there grows between 1920 and 2020 meters above sea level. It translates into a slow ripening of the cherries, which develop flavours and aromas more complex and interesting acidities. Lots of fruits and floral hints are found in these coffees.
Bombe producers are part of a member organisation consisting of 667 producers. After harvesting their cherries, they deliver their coffee to the Bombe washing station for it to be processed.
This lot was wet fermented between 36 and 72 hours and then dried on African beds covered with clean plastic meth and sheet between 9 and 12 days to around 10% moisture. During the sun, beds are covered to avoid an over-drying of the coffee.
