Located in the south of Ethiopia, Nensebo is a lesser known region which often gets lumped in with its nearby coffee sibling Sidamo. In the last few years, coffee buyers have become very aware of the great potential which Nensebo offers, especially with its great success in the Cup of Excellence. Nensebo has finally become recognized as its own specialty coffee sub-region, and the Gora Kone washing station is a shining example.
Founded in 2010, Gora Kone has developed positive relations and increased coffee quality over the years via a few key supports to local producers: managerial training at the washing station level, advance pre-finance payments, and premiums for red cherries upon delivery. Cherries are sourced from 700 to 800 coffee smallholders, who all own plots no larger than three hectares and also adopt shade-growing practices without question using wanza and acacia trees. The cherries are washed fresh from the Gerenbicho river, an affluent of the Nensebo river, and dried on raised beds for 15 to 18 days.
The result is a wonderfully complex and juicy coffee full of pomegranate and black cherries up front and the aroma of roses and cacao in the finish. A special treat which we hope you will savor and enjoy!
