  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    In Southern Ethiopia, the Sidama zone has long carried the reputation of being one of the best coffee producing areas, not only in Ethiopia, but on a global level. Coffees grown here are known for their distinct floral notes, clear acidity and lasting sweetness. This offering from the Bokasso co-operative (a member of the greater Sidama Coffee Farmer’s Cooperative Union) is no exception.

    A common practice within the Sidama zone and amongst Bokasso co-operative members is what is known as the ‘garden coffee system’. This essentially means that coffees are planted in ‘gardens’ near homesteads at lower densities (1000 to 1800 trees per hectare), fertilized using only organic nutrients, and harvested by family labor.

    The Bokasso co-operative holds both Organic and Fair Trade certificates and trains their members to pick only the ripest cherries during harvest. Freshly picked cherries are sorted before pulping and then sold to the cooperative for processing. The cherries are then washed, naturally fermented (up to 48 hours) and washed again, using only clean running water. The coffee is dried on raised beds until it reaches a moisture content of about 11.5 percent, being moved continuously to ensure even drying. It is then stored in parchment until it’s ready for delivery.
