What the witnesses say about our coffee

Only the Best

Ethiopia Bensa Shantawene

by onyx  coffee Lab

Deep in the Sidama region of Ethiopia nestled in the foothills of the Bombe Mountains lies the small farming town of Shantawene. We don’t typically buy coffee from this region, but that will have to change after tasting this coffee. This sweet, perfumey coffee tastes of peach and cream soda upfront. A smooth, silky mouthfeel also stands out, making this one of our favorite surprise releases of the year. It also happens to be Certified Organic.

Origin: Ethiopia

Region: Sidama

Washing Station: Shantawene

Process: Washed & Raised-bed Dried

Elevation: 2100 meters

Variety: Mikicho, Setami, Heirloom

Cup: Peach, Cream Soda, Kiwi, Silky Honey

This washing station is a culmination of several years of preparation for Sidama coffee man Assefa Dukamo and his family. Bombe Washing Station is named for the Bombe Mountains which stand to the south of several of the washing stations where we've worked the past few years, specifically Shantawene and Qonqona Washing Stations. On the north side of this washing stating lies the Shantawene, on the south lies Bombe. This producing season, producers from both communities delivered cherries to this site, as a central processing point for Organic Certified coffees. While Shantawene maintains a washing station of its own, this site location took lots from both communities and separated each lot in specific fermentation tanks and drying locations. This provides many more opportunities to the producers, as well as centralizes special processing techniques, such as shaded fermentation tanks and washing channels as well as mesh shaded drying tables.

Not only is the wet mill well-organized and run by a team including newest member Atkilt Dejene, a female agronomist who has also worked with the award-winning Gesha Village project, but the community of producers achieved several levels of certification, including NOP and JAS Organic as well as C.A.F.E. Practices. This allows the local coffee cherries, already grown using organic practices, to reach new markets around the world.
