Sun-Dried Ethiopia Shakiso
Abyot Boru purchased Shakiso washing station in 2011 to create more opportunity for local farmers to share their coffee with the world. After bringing his own coffee cherries to various washing stations, purchasing a mill gave him more of a voice in the local coffee trade. His station now serves 700 smallholder farmers in the Oromia region of Ethiopia, where Abyot’s father was a coffee farmer. A lifelong advocate of Ethiopian coffee, Abyot is said to have coffee in his blood; that passion is reflected in this cup, a particularly striking lot, sun-dried in the Ethiopian tradition with flavors of ripe red fruit and cassis.
