"Natural or Washed, that's my biggest dilemma. I wanted to source a unique natural coffee that doesn't taste like any other natural Ethiopian. A juicy, fruity, and floral cup of coffee along with the traditional high-sweetness of a Natural process. I also wanted a coffee that can be great hot or cold. A coffee that conveys togetherness and summertime memories." 

 

Banko Gotiti washing station is directly supported by smallholder farms, which grow their coffee either in semi-forest conditions (farmers pruning and tending to naturally grow coffee trees in forest area) or garden conditions (coffee trees cultivated and tended near a farmer’s residence). By sourcing exclusively from these farms, SNAP, the exporter, is able to create new opportunities for smallholder farmers whose coffee might not have been marketable as premium specialty coffee.

 

Giving farmers access to state of the art processing through their washing stations creates value for farmers while building consistency and quality.

 

What makes this coffee unique in Ethiopia is the variety used: Dega - a regional landrace of Ethiopia. The Amharic word “dega” means “cool highland area,” which is also applicable to the agroecological conditions where Dega coffee grows. 

This coffee is a top grade (Grade 1) natural coffee from Ethiopia displaying one of the cleanest flavor profiles I've ever experienced in a Natural processed coffee.
