This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Gerbicho Lela Cooperative located in the district of Aleta Wondo within the Sidama Zone, Ethiopia. The Gerbicho Lela Cooperative is a unionize group of growers organized around 2001 to support sustainable coffee production in the Sidama region.

Natually processed coffee – Natural sundried, also called “natural process” or “dry process,” means drying coffee cherries whole without the use of water or machines to remove any of the fruit. Prior to drying, the cherries are picked, floated in water, and sorted to remove any under-ripe or overripe fruit. The coffee is laid out on “African style” raised beds.  Raised beds are preferred because they increase the airflow around the whole fruit to enable uniform drying.   There they remain until the desired fermentation has been occurred and then they are de-pulped and sent to the dry mill for further processing.

Naturally processed coffees almost always enjoy a sweet and fruity flavor profile.

Our favorite way to make this coffee is the Hario V-60 as it high-lites the sweet aromatics and draws out the chocolately undertones that make it a stand out coffee!
