Zippy and tangy, grippy and bright, this very limited medium roast coffee will appeal to drinkers looking for a noticeably juicy cup of adventure.


This lot comes to us from approximately 500 small specialty coffee farms located 1920 – 2020 meters above sea level in Bombe Village, Ethiopia. These farmers deliver their ripe Ethiopian Heirloom, 74-110 and 74-112 varietal cherries to the Abore washing
station in nearby Bensa, Ethiopia.

Abore gets its name from a bridge and a fountain located next to the washing station that was originally dedicated to a local chief in the area. Situated near the Bok Nora Waterfall, the Abore washing station is surrounded by vast and huge vegetation.
Abore washing station is well known by the locals in the region and popular for its long history. Originally built and founded in 1997, many employees have been working there since it was founded.
