The Gedio region enjoys fertile iron-rich soils and a good spread of genetic variety due to the Heirloom varieties that grow here. With ongoing issues internally in the country, this coffee season has been an incredibly challenging one, with many farmers unable to even harvest their crops.
This coffee from the Beloya village is one of the few very special, naturals we could get our hands on, and luckily, you will not be disappointed. Heleanna and her processing team at Moplaco, have their own washing station in Kochere, so access and communication were complicated, but it was still possible. We feel very lucky to be able to offer this beautiful coffee.
Beloya became famous when the Specialty sundried craze started to spread, and the community produced some excellent results. There is a reason why Ethiopia holds such a strong place in our hearts, and why we love the nuanced profiles, and it is not just its heritage.
This coffee is an exceptionally clean natural coffee, think everything PURPLE, ripe Black Doris plums, Ribena syrup, and Black currants.
