Description: Shantawene Buncho comes from Daye Bensa, an operation in Ethiopia that is known for the quality of their coffee. Buncho is a washing station sitting adjacent to Daye Bensa’s research and model coffee farm, Gatta. The Buncho Station sources coffee cherries from Gatta Farm, as well as serving to mill coffee from 940 other local farmers.
Daye Bensa consistently performs incredibly well at the Cup Of Excellence in Ethiopia, and this year they placed 2nd! It’s should be no surprise that this coffee from Shantawene Buncho is a single variety lot. Single variety separations are not common in Ethiopia, but Daye Bensa isn’t in the business of common coffees. 74158 is a variety developed by the Jimma Argricultural Research Centre (JARC) for resistance to disease and high yield.
This coffee is sweet and vibrantly fruity; an exceptional archetypal Ethiopian natural.
