Anaerobic Bale Mountain | K23–0040

Producer: Israel Degfa

Bale Mountain Farm is located in Arsi, in the Bale Mountains belt. This region forms the SE of the Ethiopian Highlands, just below 3,000 masl. The farm itself is located at 1,800 - 2,100 masl and employs 350 staff at the Dry MiIl and nearby Solena Washing Station. It is an idyllic location, extremely hard to reach by road and surrounded by two large rivers that flow to the Wabe Shebelle River and Forest Mountains. The coffee collected from the farm is notably dense and uniform, consistently delivering a high-quality cup profile. Bale Mountain farm is also engaged in social responsibility activities like local road construction, nursery establishment and free distribution of coffee seedlings, school building and financial support during the off season. Kerchanshe helps the Bale Mountain Farm communities to be a productive and positive place to live and work.

The anaerobic fermentation in this lot highlights the acidity and fruit notes usually found in Bale Mountain coffees. It was a standout on the cupping table due to the fresh melon notes and similarity to blueberry muffins.
