More about the Coffee

This was a National Winner in this year’s Ethiopia Cup – a celebration of the best small-batch coffees the country has to offer, held by Ethiopian coffee specialists Trabocca, who we’ve worked with for several years.

Picked by hand then washed at a small wet mill, it's fermented for 16-36 hours and dried on raised wooden beds for about 11 days, where it’s hand-turned once a day. It’s a very traditional processing method which takes great love and care, creating a fantastically high quality coffee that’s a real showcase for the classic flavours of the Sidama region.

Meet the Producer

Bekele Neyo Noute’s farm is a family affair. Having been raised by two coffee growing parents, he got his start when he acquired a small plot 28 years ago. Coffee trees are now the main source of income for his family of 12.

Bekele’s coffee grows beneath shade trees which protect the plants, and alongside corn and beans which promote crop diversity - two farming methods which boost quality and consistency. He previously sold through a coffee exchange which didn’t identify specific farms, but the switch to selling through Trabocca has brought traceability, awards, recognition and much better prices.
