ETHIOPIA- Sagara lot 3
Daye Bensa Coffee Export owns the Sagara washing station located in the Sagara kebele within the Bensa woreda of the Sidama zone. The washing station sits at 1980masl & the coffee cherries are purchased from out-growers with farms nearby. These out-are typically small farms with between 0.5 & 3 hectares of land which is managed organically with compost & grown within the native forest.
There is a mix of varieties in the area, some of which are local landrace selections, but more commonly it is the 74158 variety which originates from the Jimma research centre. This variety was selected from wild plants in the Metu-Bishari forest in the Illuababora zone in Western Ethiopia.
The coffee itself is elegant, with notes of Lime, Jasmine, and a hint of Bergamot citrus. Keep the milk away from this one.
