THE STORY BEHIND

Ethiopia Sidama Bensa Odako is sourced from 650 family-owned farms. The farms are organised around the Bensa washing station, located in the Bensa district (woreda), which is in the Sidama Zone within the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' (SNNPR) State, Ethiopia.

This coffee is a micro-lot and has been called “Odako” as a tribute to the culture of Shantawene, Sidama people; the Odako tree is the meeting point for the Shantewene community, where potential conflicts are discussed and resolved. Similar traditions of dispute resolution exist in other parts of Ethiopia as well.

THE FERMENTATION PROCESS

Producers deliver ripe cherries to Bensa mill every day during the harvest season. At the washing station, coffee is carefully sorted and placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2 to 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process. Depending on weather, the beans are dried for 15 to 21 days until the moisture content in the coffee beans is reduced to 11,5%. The beans are then transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
