More about the coffee:
The Bombe wet mill layout is organised in such a way that allows for special processing techniques, such as shaded fermentation tanks and washing channels as well as mesh shaded drying tables
The wet mill is organised and run by a team including a female agronomist, Atkilt Dejene, who has also worked with the award-winning Gesha Village project.
This particular lot has been processed as a shade dried natural under shade mesh canopy to create a slower, therefore more gentle, drying period that has been stretched to 25 days during which the table is agitated every 15 minutes during the day to guarantee even drying, therefore consistent quality.
Traceability is extremely important during the production of micro lots. The record-keeping book is carefully handled and separation of lots is key to guaranteeing the highest level of quality.
When the cherries are received they are separated by village, the coffee is then kept separate throughout drying, processing, and storage, with labels stating the delivery dates, farm name, lot number, and more details related to the particular lot.
They also run an out-growers program that benefits farmers with an off-season payment on top of the harvest fee and have been active in working to improve the farmers’ living situations and standards, with healthcare access, utilities, education and transport infrastructure. Additionally, Daye Bensa are working with the school principals in the villages surrounding the farms, providing basic school materials for the students.
