Sidama is famous for its clean coffees that often carry strong floral notes, citric and berry flavours. Most coffees are organic by default.
Bokasso is processing with diligent lot separation, tracing coffees from days of production at drying tables all the way to the warehouse. The coffee cheeries are carefully picked by hand, washed and dried slowly over 10-15 days on raised drying beds. The coffees are brought in from 2000 meters above sea level. The volcanic soil is rich in minerals.
Bokasso was a rockstar on our bar last year. This coffee is very versatile and will truely give you three different tastes in any coffee flight. The rose and lemon flavours are a great counterbalance to the sweetness of the straight up espresso. With milk integration this coffee brings out chocolate notes, rounded up with peach flavours. The filter brew will give you peaches and florals - make sure you breathe in before taking your first sip. It is sensational!
We roast Bokasso with an espresso profile. As with all our espressos, you can easily put them on any filter method at home. The coffees will be clean and flavoursome. We chose not to roast with two different profiles in those cases where we think we cannot bring out more qualities by having two methods.
We never blend any of our coffees and sell whole beans only to keep them as fresh as possible for you. All our coffees are fresh in season and of highest grading. We make it a point to pay a premium that enables our farmers to build a sustainable business and produce a high quality product in which they take great pride.
Our coffees are roasted rather light to create a fully developed but very clean taste.
