Ethiopia - Beshasha Lot # 2
Because you might like it
This washed Ethiopian coffee takes its name from the word Beshasha which means wet mill, is located at 2040 masl and is grown with different selections of varieties by the Jimma Research Center
In the cup the sensation of freshness, at the same time sweet, reminiscent of the perfect union between pomegranate, honey and mandarin.
With the support of the Falcon team in Addis Ababa, we are able to work directly with small producers such as Mustefa Abakeno. We see a huge opportunity to improve quality through direct relationships, as we are able to work with producers on cherry selection, drying and handling. We are also able to make the supply chain more efficient and thus maximize the money that goes back to the producers.
In 2020 Mustefa acquired a second washing station, Kabira, to receive cherries from local producers. Due to the subtle differences in location and microclimate, Beshasha now processes almost exclusively washed batches (the coffee ferments 8 hours and then is moved for about 13-16 days on the drying beds) while Kabira, which has more space for the drying beds , is more suitable for processing natural products.
Mustefa Abakeno is a small farmer who owns 18 hectares of land near Agaro, in the Jimma area of western Ethiopia. Agaro in the Oromiya region, with its 28,268 inhabitants is a town located in Ethiopia, 265 km southwest of Addis Ababa, the country's capital.
