The Benti Nenka processing site is located in a village ("Kebele") of the same name within the Hambela Wamena region, Ethiopia's Guji Zone. This is from the same station owner, Kedir Hassan, a proficient and capable engineer as well as coffee farmer. He's erected a few stations in Hambela Wamena region, some producing both washed and dry process ("naturals") coffees, though Benti Nenka only produces naturals. Of course he did not complete them on his own, and thanks to his long-standing connection with the people in this area, he had much needed community support on his side. Kedir splits bamboo reeds for constructing his drying beds, so they're flat and quite sturdy. A lot of chicken wire is used at other sites, which tends to sag, creating uneven coffee layers. This lot is only made up of coffee from the small holders in the Benti Nenka area, whose farms span an altitude range of roughly 1900 to 2100 meters above sea level.



Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted to order. This can take 24 - 72 hours after the order has been received and according to the roasting schedule. You will be notified through email when the order has shipped or is ready for local pickup.
