People

This coffee is produced on Israel Degfa's private Gelana farm in the Yirgacheffe region. Israel is a coffee farmer but also a shareholder of Kamba. Ultimately, the money that these coffees are sold for by Kamba at the end of the chain, goes in part back to Israel and is reinvested in the Ethiopian coffee community. The work of Kerchanshe stretches far beyond coffee, too. Israel has set up the Buna Qala Charity and a Smallholder Membership scheme that reinvests profits back into community projects and healthcare, education, agricultural and financial incentives. The Gelana dry mill consists of 500 raised beds, and employs 48 permanent members of staff and around additional 500 temporary staff during the harvest season.

Planet

Yirgacheffe's unique terroir, high altitudes of 1,500 - 1,750 masl, and heirloom varietals contribute to the exceptional quality and distinctiveness of its naturally processed coffees, making them highly coveted in the world of specialty coffee. The work at Gelana farm is monitored by teams of agronomists to help contribute to variety research in the face of climate change.

Flavour

Undergoing natural processing, and growing in deep, rich, sandy soil this Gesha bean has tasting notes of Peach, vanilla and bitter grapefruit . Being naturally processed, this method involves sun-drying whole coffee cherries, leaving the beans inside the fruit to ferment and reabsorb the sugars. The cherries are carefully spread on raised beds, allowing them to dry slowly over 2 - 4 weeks. This natural process imparts a rich, fruity, and often wine-like character to the coffee, with intense and complex flavour profiles.
