Producers from Keramo Live high up in the the Bombe Mountains. They deliver their coffee in cherry form to Keramo Washing Station, which is owned by Daye Bensa, a coffee export company, founded by the brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo, in 2006.
Asefa and Mulugeta have a lot of experience, and started out as coffee suppliers in the Sidama area. Other family members have now also joined the company as Daye Bensa started to grow, and now have family members like Kenean, schooled in the USA, as Head of Coffee.
The cherries are processed at Keramo washing station. These cherries come from some of the highest elevation farms in Ethiopia, with elevations up to 2360 meter above sea level. The beans are very dense, with heavy concentration of the smaller screen sizes due to slow maturation at higher altitudes.
We love this coffee as both a juicy filter option and a bright and syrupy espresso option.
