Description

This Ethiopian Limu Kossa is was full washed specialty coffee sourced via Falcon Specialty.

Ethiopia

Original Arabica trees are traced to modern day Southern Sudan and Ethiopia. This area would have been part of the original Abyssinia. Ethiopia is subset of the countries that were Abyssinia, which is why Ethiopia is regularly considered to be the birth place of coffee.

Ethiopia is the only country today that calls coffee “Bunna“, all other countries, including the Arabian based counties call it coffee (probably a derivative of qahwah). However, Ethiopia is credited as the country of origin of Arabica Coffea.

Limu, Ethiopia

Like most of Ethiopian coffees, Limu is a region known for its coffees that grow wild in the forests. Typically all coffee from Limu is collected from small holdings that are attached or close to the forests in the Kaffa region.

Limu Kossa

Below is Flacon’s Description of the coffee:

Located far in the West of Ethiopia in an area known as Limu Kossa, where farmer and landowner Gidey Berthe grows coffee on a 350 hectare farm at between 1840-2130 masl. The farm is meticulously maintained, from the trees to the signs dividing the lot sections. The land was once wild forest and has been thinned slightly to accommodate the coffee, but the feeling of quiet solitude pervades amongst the native trees.

Coffee is picked by 400 seasonal workers employed during harvest season. At the farm’s collection station, green cherries are sorted out before their bags are weighed for payment. The green cherries are dried as naturals and sold to the local market.

The mill processes around 20,000kg of cherry per day during the peak of the season. The natural process coffee is dried for 24 hours under cover before being placed in the full sun for a further 7-10 days.
