Field blend of varieties, washed process
Roasted for filter brewing
Calamansi lime, barley sugar, and a mandarin finish.
The second of just two Ethiopian releases for this season, this washed, native heirloom variety selection comes to us from a group of smallholder farmers, located around the Buki coffee washing station in southern Ethiopia.
Like a lot of Ethiopian coffees we’ve featured, this lot is a blend of day lots grown and harvested by local farmers, who sell their coffee cherries to a centralised washing station. The washing station processes the coffee by removing the skin and fruit flesh from around the coffee seeds, prior to washing and drying the coffee ready for export.
We’re really excited to be releasing Buki in two different roast styles — roasted for espresso, and roasted for filter — so our customers can try the same coffee brewed in different ways.
This is the first time we’ve purchased from the Buki washing station, and have done so through one of our import partners, Cafe Imports.
