 The story behind this blend

The Ethiopian coffee component of this blend is produced by a collective of 476 local farmers of the Worka Chelbesa in the Gedeo zone, one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi-forest vegetation structure, Chelbesa is a great example of coffee growing agroecology. This coffee displays the classic floral and delicate characteristics of washed Ethiopian coffees that brings elegance and refinement to this blend.  

The Rwandan coffee component is produced by Nkara, a washing station located in a district called Gakenke in the rugged northwest of the country. The station is operated by Musasa Dukunde Kawa, a company operating multiple stations in the area. During the harvest, Nkara collects ripe cherries from over 2000 small scale farmers of the area. They then handle all the de-pulping, washing, drying and sorting. In addition to the great work the cooperative does with quality improvement, they also run various social programs that contribute to the livelihoods of the members (school fees, medical insurance and even free cows as bonus payment for quality cherries). This Red Bourbon lot is providing its honey sweetness and berry flavour to the blend.
