ETHIOPIA MR. GIRMA ESHETU

16.00

Mr. Girma has been running his family Estate for about 20 years.  It is located in the Keffa Zone, which is just west of Jimma, and Northwest of the famed Yirgacheffe region.  While not as well known as the regions of Sidamo and Yirgacheffe there are some really amazing coffee's here. 

Over the next couple of years, it is very likely we will see more and more coffee's coming out of this region.  Mr. Girma's Estate produces organic, shade grown coffee.  About 20 people live on the farm year round, with that number swelling to about a 100 during picking season.  There is ample housing for the pickers to live and work on the farm during this busy season. 

The estate is located deep in the forest in what is known as the Afromontane rainforest, a subregion of eastern Africa. Black colobus monkeys swing high up in the canopies of Mr Girma's Estate, along with a variety of birds and other plants species.  A natural spring located high up in the estate provides a small, but steady river and is the only water source for the farm. We were able to spend some time with Mr Girma on his estate and even camped with him and his son on the farm.  We can attest he runs his estate with precision and takes very good care of everyone involved. 

Using the water from the river on the estate, to process his washed coffee, the coffee is fermented for 42 hours before being washed and dried on raised beds for 10-12 days. The result is a classic washed Ethiopian Profile.
