Ethiopia Boji Kelloo Semi-Shade
This coffee is from a Privately owned communal wet mill in Kochere, called Boji, after the kebele where it is, collecting cherries from various smallholders. Boji, also spelled Bojei, is a Gedefa word meaning "cold weather". Kebele is Beji, specific area is Bonde.
The washing station is owned by Israel Degfa, a young business man in Ethiopia with a sure and steady focus. He owns thirteen washing stations and a farm, across the South and South West of Ethiopia. In previous years the production at these washing stations has been focused on volume but over the last years Israel has shifted his focus, and is working on the quality of processing across his washing stations as priority.
This coffee is fully washed and dried on raised tables under shade nets. Israel Degfa is doing some selected quality lots like this as they believe it increases the quality and flavor intensity. And we think they do taste great as well. But it's not only the drying, they also do a very selective cherry selection and processing for these coffees to begin with.
You can expect a delicate and balanced cup profile with notes of white peach, red apple, white floral and honey. Sweet with great depth of flavour.
