Bale Mountain

Oromia, Ethiopia



Blueberry, Peach, White Chocolate

We’re up in the high mountains of West Arsi, Ethiopia this week. Showcasing a brilliant naturally processed lot from Bale Mountain, run by Israel Degfa. We buy many coffees from Israel as he’s consistently producing some of the best coffees around, this one is a juicy full bodied lot with notes of Blueberry, white chocolate and peach.

Along with producing fine coffees, Israel also supports the local communities with construction of nurseries, roads and financing some of the farmers during harvest season.
