Biftu Gudina is a special coffee for us at Five Elephant. We first started working with them in 2013, just a year after they began, and when they were still in the process of construction. Over the years the cooperative has moved through different export unions, which has had a detrimental effect on the quality of the coffee. Now with two washing stations and more than 600 members, the quality is returning to that of its stunning past.
This lot is part of a small and carefully curated selection of coffees from the west, which we have sourced with our long-time export partners at Nordic Approach. The cooperative was established through an NGO called Technoserve. They are located in Agaro, close to Jimma in the west of Ethiopia, known lately for very flavor-intense, floral, and spicy coffees with extraordinary complexity and uniqueness.
Before these cooperatives were established, the farmers were mainly producing lower-grade naturals sold as Jimma Grade 5. The coffee cherries are chosen from smallholders with less than 3 hectares per farm. All coffees selected are grown around and above 1900 meters above sea level. The cooperative is using Penagos ecopulpers, which contributes to the coffee's brilliant clarity of cup, it is hardly fermented during processing. After pulping, the coffees are often soaked under clean water overnight before they are dried on raised tables.
