This coffee comes from a privately owned farm close to Shantawene Village in the Bombe mountain regions of Sidama. The coffee is certified organic and grown at a high altitude of between 2000 and 2100 meters. It is dry processed and as a result deep in both flavor and body.
There are some that think that dry processed coffees are one trick ponies - just fruit bombs. However we at modcup strongly disagree - when you get grade one Dry processed coffees of this calibre they are some of the most complex coffees your likely to try. Its certainly not a delicate coffee and its one/two opening flurry of grape and blueberry punches are certainly heavy handed and easily distinguishable flavors that put to bed the "i don't taste what the flavor card says". However there is a floral aspect in both aroma and taste that adds a delicate structure to the overall experience. Think a big electronic bass track that is underpinned by a subtle background string orchestra!
There are certainly wine like ferment flavors too in the coffee, however once again nothing too boozy, and more akin to the plum flavors found in young wine, sweeeeettt and a little tart.
For those that like there Ethiopian coffees then we encourage you to step up to the plate because this is one of the highest scoring we have offered in 2019. And with a December release and coming from a village with a name like S(h)anta wene, we feel its kinda the perfect holidays coffee
