Coffee Description

This heirloom coffee bursts with fresh, sweet aromas of honeydew, pineapple, and caramel. Honeydew carries over into the cup, along with lemon notes, papaya sweetness, and apple acidity. Soft body and lingering black tea and honeysuckle florals beg for just one more sip.

About Smallholder producers of Ethiopia

Approximately 670 coffee growers in the Borena zone of Yirgacheffe bring their coffees to the Borboya Washing Station. These smallholders are not co-op members. Rather, they band together as neighbors, combining harvests from their small farms in order to create large enough lots for processing and export.

The Borena zone boasts an ideal micro-climate for coaxing the maximum flavor from slowly ripening coffee cherries. At Borboya, these cherries are sorted, pulped, then fermented in water for about 36 hours to remove any clinging mucilage. 10 or so days drying on elevated beds brings the beans to the proper water content, and then they’re bagged and sent to the warehouse to await shipping.
