New Coffee Alert - Ethiopia Keramo - Natural Sidama

Posted by Tony Bitner on

At Rusty Dog we truly love coffee from Ethiopia! Each year we look forward to the new arrivals to sample. We are really excited to be bringing in this new crop from the same farm as our current offering. So, if you are like us and love our current coffee, you know this one is also stellar! 

A little about the coffee and where it comes from!

Keramo Daye Bensa Station, owned by brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo, serves about 381 smallholder farmers growing and harvesting coffee in and around Keramo, Sidama, Ethiopia, a place known for its rich vegetation and climate. Keramo farmers have built a reputation for picking only red cherries, and in 2020 Daye Bensa Coffee earned a Cup of Excellence award.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level: The average producer here delivers their cherry to the washing station, where it is blended with other producers' deliveries and processed as necessary.

Natural coffees are typically delivered the day they are harvested, and are first sorted for ripeness and quality before being rinsed clean of dirt. Then they are spread on raised drying beds or tables, where they will be rotated constantly throughout the course of drying. Drying can take an average of 8–25 days, depending on the weather.

Cheers!
