ETHIOPIA - KERAMO
We taste summer peaches, passion fruit, & blackberries.
The producers of Keramo, who live high up in the beautiful Bombe mountains, have a relationship as growers with our Ethiopian partner, Daye Bensa. The grower group consists of about 1500 growers in various parts of the mountain range.
Daye Bensa has gained popularity in the specialty coffee community over the last few years after providing some of the most complex profiles. Keramo cherries are processed at Keramo Washing Station. Keramo and Hamasho are our highest-elevation coffees from Ethiopia, with elevations up to 2360 meters above sea level.
Producer: Daye Bensa
Location: Keramo, Bura, Bensa, Sidama
Elevation: 2,300 masl
The washed Keramo is traditionally wet fermented for 36 to 72 hours, and then dried on African beds with clean plastic mesh and sheet, for about 9 to 12 days to around 10% moisture, during high sun. The beds are covered to prevent over-drying.
