THE COFFEE QUEST'S STORY:
This coffee is processed at Bombe Washing Station in Sidama. The cherries are coming from three villages: Bombe itself, nearby Shawantawene and Keramo.
Bombe (or Abore) washing station is named after Bombe mountain in the Sidama region, which is located south from the washing station. The Bombe site is the culmination of several years of hard work and preparation from Sidama coffee man Asefa Dukamo and his family, who have been our close partners for a number of harvests. Each year working with Asefa, we had the privilege of promoting ongoing traceability efforts. At first, regional mixed lots, then individual washing stations, then certain groups of smallholders within each lot separated by village. All that was missing was a dedicated site to allow the partnership to become even more focused. Enter Bombe Station!
Starting 2017/2018 harvest, producers from the Shantawene, Bombe, and Keramo communities delivered their very best cherries to the Bombe site, where they were separated into specific fermentation tanks and drying locations. The layout and good management of Bombe washing station allows for special processing techniques, such as shaded fermentation tanks and washing channels as well as mesh shaded drying tables, to be used with the coffees. The wet mill is well-organized and run by a team including member Atkilt Dejene, a female agronomist who has also worked with the award-winning Gesha Village project, among others such as processing specialist, Eyasu Bekele, whom we worked with for the Reko Koba project several years running. The volume capacity at Bombe washing station is at max 2.5 million kgs of cherries, but for the past couple year, this site has maintained a strict dedication to producing outstanding quality above quantity.
