The Nefas farm is located in the Sidama region, about 514 km from Ethiopia’s capital city Addis Ababa. The soil is predominantly loamy and the farm area is covered by a dense forest. All coffee is 100% shade grown at this farm.
At the washing station, the washed coffees are pulped with an Agared machine. This is a pulper that has no mucilage remover. The coffee beans are fermented for about 35-48 hours in fermentation tanks, depending on the climate at that moment. Subsequently, coffee is dried between 9 and 15 days on elevated beds. In order to produce natural coffees, the ripe, red cherries are put on drying beds directly after picking.
Notes: chamomile with citrusy brightness and heavy milk chocolate undertones
