"Natural" dried in the fruit on raised beds.
October - December
This coffee is produced by Bogale Turitu and processed as a separate micro-lot by Tesfaye Roba. Bogale’s 30-acre farm is located near the community of Chelchele in the Gedeb district of the Gedeo Zone, Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region, Ethiopia. Tesfaye and his brothers recently took over farm operations for their mother, Bedihatu Jibicho (now approaching 100 years old) and also began processing and exporting coffee for neighbors like Bogale. Bogale has been cultivating coffee for 12 years but this is the first year, with the help of Tesfaye, that he has been able to sell his coffee as a micro-lot. Coffee is Bogale’s main source of income that he uses to support his nine children (5 boys and 4 girls).
