This coffee is one of two lots being sold under the "Bombe" name, the other being a fantastic wet process coffee yet to be listed. Both coffees come from a privately owned farm and processing site near Shantawene Village, tucked away in the Bombe mountains of Ethiopia's Sidama growing region. Along with coffee from their own farm called "Daye Bensa", they are buying and processing coffee from local farmers from three different growing areas nearby - Shantawene, Bombe and Keramo villages. The samples we tasted from all three sites scored very high and we wound up buying wet and dry process lots from all of them. This lot is a mix of coffees harvested from their own farm and out-growers around Bombe village. It's certified organic too, which means that they register every farmer who they buy from and certify that organic agricultural practices are being employed at the farm level (they're also Rain Forest Alliance and UTZ certified, but we only brought in with the organic certificate). Ethiopian heirloom types are the main seeds cultivated and altitude ranges from just under 2000 meters to 2100 meters above sea level.
