Arroressa, is sourced from more than 650 farmers living in Dembi a village near the Bensa District of the Sidama Zone, Ethiopia. Farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Arroressa mill which is owned and operated by Asefa Dukale. Ripe cherries are carefully sorted and pulped. After pulping, the beans are fermented for 36 to 48 hours and then washed. Depending on weather, the beans are dried for 10 to 12 days until the moisture in the coffee beans is reduced to 11.5 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export. Arroressa is fully washed and sundried on raised beds.
Flavor Notes: Mandarin Orange, Peach Preserves, Jasmine, Violet
