Purchased directly from a speciality Ethiopian coffee producer, Boledu, who have been producing high-quality coffees. Boledu’s mission is To enhance sustainable and valuable customer satisfaction within the coffee industry. Though founded in 2018, the founders have over 13 years of experience in coffee farming, processing, and packing which has given them valuable insight into creating and sustaining high-quality coffee.
This particular coffee has gone through a winey fermentation process. The process of this lot has been nicknamed ‘winey’ or ‘tej’ in reference to the Ethiopian honey wine Tej.
The cherries are first placed in tanks of water for 4-5 days to start the fermentation process, this is also where the natural anaerobic process happens. After 4-5 days sealed in tanks, the cherries are then placed on raised beds to dry. This style of fermentation requires a lot of attention, both in the tanks as well as on the drying beds, as the bacteria involved can be quite volatile. The result is a clean cup with a lot of really funky interesting flavours. Expect a boozy tropical fruit hit with a stunning velvety floral finish.
