Bole Hora Natural • A single estate Ethiopian

Bole Hora Natural • A single estate Ethiopian

October 01, 2019

We had some disruption to a long standing relationship due to in-country politics last year and had to start from scratch. This last harvest we focused on a couple of small holder estates in Guji and Limu. Estates are fairly rare in Ethiopia. Most coffee is grown by people in their backyards and is a secondary source of income.

This makes it difficult to build consistent relationships sometimes, and so we're working to find farms that would be more in line with a Central American sized farm. Bole Hora fits the bill. it's a farm run by third generation coffee farmer Binyam Aklilu. His grandfather started the farm in 1980 and he has carefully managed this operation during his tenure, hand selecting varieties for each area and overseeing picking and production closely. 

We've been really amazed by the cleanliness of this coffee. It has all the fruit flavors and depth of really great naturals but also the vibrance and clarity of a washed coffee!
