This is the second year we've purchased Bogalech's coffee and in fact, only the second year that her coffee has been separated from the larger community lots her coffee used to be part of. Our importing partner, Osito, asked Ture Waji of Sookoo coffee to consider separating the cherry of producers who deliver a large enough quantity to the station. Last year, and this year, we bought two such lots from Osito. Bogalech Dukkale is a 45-year-old mother of six. She and her husband oversee a four hectare farm that Bogalech inherited from her parents, who were also coffee producers.
This famous coffee growing region is known for its rich, volcanic soil. High altitudes, bi-modal rainfall patterns and dry weather which allows for coffee to develop slowly and consistently here.
74112 is one of six selections that were approved for release in 1974 as part of a CBD-resistance (Coffee Berry Disease) selection program. During the 1970's, researchers from the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre searched the forests in the Illuababora zone for CBD-resistant mother trees. Today 74112 has been widely distributed across most growing regions in the country.
Dried on raised beds for 21-28 days in very thin layers. The cherries are moved and rotated frequently to ensure even and precise drying.
