Our new single origin offering, Ethiopia Bale Mountain Natural, comes to us from the Guji region in Southern Ethiopia. Sourced with the help of our friends at Red Fox Coffee Merchants, this microlot showcases the exceptional quality Ethiopian natural processed coffees possess.
Bale Mountain is the name of the farm this microlot hails from. The eco-friendly and sustainable coffee production practices carried out at the Bale Mountain farm help the community living around the farm. Covered and protected by a number of large shade trees, the coffee farm plays a great role in water conservation and soil fertility enhancement. The coffee collected from this farm is incredibly pure, aromatic, dense, uniform, and extremely delicious.
The farm is engaged in social responsibility activities like the construction of local roads, the establishment of a nursery, the free distribution of coffee seedlings, the construction of schools, and financial support for the community to face challenges during the off-season. We are honored to feature a coffee from a producer group that gives back to its local community. We love the notes of juicy currant, sweet, and delectable chocolate mousse, with a white tea finish.
This lot from Bale Mountain is the second Ethiopian microlot from Red Fox we have featured this summer and we’re delighted to share this coffee with you.
What is Single Origin Coffee? Unlike coffee blends, Single Origin Coffee has a single geographic origin. This could be a single farm or a single country. For the majority of these coffees, we will have a direct relationship with the farmer who grows them. Because coffee is a crop, harvesting is seasonal and the timing is specific to each region, our selection of single-origin coffees will vary throughout the year.
To make it extra special, we commissioned local artist, Alicia Binkley of Monkey Ink Design to illustrate our Single Origin labels. Enjoy!
This coffee is sold as Whole Bean to provide you with the freshest product. Please let us know in your order notes if you want your coffee ground.
