An organically grown, naturally pulped, washed and dried bean, cultivated by Mustefa Abakeno and his farmers near Agaro, in the Jimma Zone of Western Ethiopa. Due to limited water and space on the farm the beans are fermented for a shorter duration of time than usual, producing a remarkedly fruity coffee unlike any other. In 2020, Mustefa aquired a second washing station called Kabira to recieve coffee cherries from local producers. Due to subtle differenes in location and hence the microclimate, his first washing station, Beshasha, is now exclusively for washed beans while Kabira is more suited to processing naturals due to the larger space for drying beds.
We connect with Mustefa through Falcon Coffee in Addis Ababa, who do a multitute of activities to help the small producers like Mustefa. Falcon recently added an agronomist to their team who’s primary focus has been to train and support Mustefa and the other local farmers, while assessing and grading the dried day-lots and putting them together based on quality and cupping profile.
These beans are roasted in-house to produce a coffee with a soft mouth-feel and notes of blueberries, strawberries and clementines with a bubbly finish.
Similarly to all our coffee here at Duffin’s, it is a Direct and Fair Trade product; we buy it at well above the World Trade and Seasonally Agreed price to ensure that the produces get a guaranteed annual income, regardless of price fluctuations.
