This lot comes from the Nura Korate Cooperative, which is under the umbrella of the Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (SCFCU). The SCFCU is a Cooperative Union which supports the Cooperatives in the Sidama region through education programs, exportation assistance, buyer/producer connections as well as infrastructure.The Sidama region is located in the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR), which borders Kenya and South Sudan. The SNNPR produces almost half of the coffee in Ethiopia, around 100,300 tons.
This offering is a wet processed coffee, or washed coffee, meaning the coffee cherry is stripped from the seeds themselves early on in the drying of the coffee. Ethiopian washed coffees are famed for their cup clarity and bright cup characteristics. Floral notes and citrus perfectly balance notes of cocoa for a spectacular cup.
