THE STORY BEHIND
Shawntawene Village is located in Sidamo Region, Ethiopia.
It is thanks to the arduous work of the coffee farmers, the Bombe washing station crew, which includes Atkilt Dejene, Assefa Dukamo, the creator and owner of Bombe washing station, Emily and Michael from Catalyst Coffee, that we are able to enjoy this unique lot!
Bombe washing station has a central role in producing this coffee. It is named after Bombe mountain, which is located south from the washing station. Thanks to being organic certified, the Bombe washing station became the centralised point for the processing of organically certified coffees. Several villages delivered their coffees to be processed in Bombe washing station, where the cherries were separately processed following the high-quality post-harvest processing methods, their traceability fully ensured. Bombe washing station processes organically certified cherries from over 600 coffee producers in the region.
The water used to process these coffees comes from the nearby Bonara river, and the coffees are dried on raised bamboo tables with mesh beds, for increased air flow.
This natural processed lot is dried in the shade from the mesh for a slower and more gentle drying. This process enhances the fruity juiciness and sweetness of these coffees with an outstanding floral and fruity taste, this beautifully clean coffee is refined by the notes of raspberry and lavender. Grand terroir and refined processing bring out all the juiciness of this velvety cup, with a hint of lime acidity.
