Perc Coffee - Ethiopia Sasaba

The Sasaba is back, baby, and it just keeps on slappin. This year's crop has a classic natural Ethiopia vibe with flavors that remind us of fresh cocoa, baking spices, and blueberry compote. I think our cups must have holes in them because they're always empty, which tells you how we feel about our old friend here. So grab a bag or seven cause this dang coffee goes all the way to eleven!
Tsegay Hagos Tesfaye founded Sasaba in the tiny town of Bule Hora in the Kercha district of Ethiopia. The mill is equipped with a large pulper and over 600 African drying beds. Sasaba processes coffee received from over 500 smallholders working in the hills surrounding the mill. Like much of Kercha, Sasaba sits at an elevation around 2000-meters above sea level. The Sasaba mill works with farmers who have proven to produce high-quality coffee, and the mill ensures fair prices for their crops.
