This coffee is from a single producer — a type of coffee more common in Ethiopia since the liberalisation of the industry. It is a natural coffee that is well produced and dried on raised beds. We are super excited about the concept and the coffees these farmers are able to deliver.
On our cupping table this coffee expressed mature fruit with rose and cardamom, yet still clean and complex!
Bekele Legie is a private medium-sized producer. We say medium-sized because he is just in between a smallholder and an estate owner, and he produces natural coffees on his own drying beds. His farm is located in the woreda of Konga where they are well known for producing some of the best lots from Yirgacheffe.
Individual farmers in Ethiopia have recently been given more freedom to export their own coffee, but few farmers know where to start. Many don’t have the knowledge or resources to sell to importers or roasters on their own, so many continue to sell their coffee to washing stations where they earn a fixed price, and lose their identity by being blended into larger lots. We work with a farmer representative to source and buy single farmer coffees in Ethiopia, like this one from Bekele Legie.
