I've found it difficult to find much information on it. 49th Parallel and Terroir Coffee ("Ademe Bedane") are the only roasters I can find that carry it. If anyone knows any more about this coffee, or photo's, I would love to know more.
What I've gathered so far:
300 farmers on single acre lots produce this coffee in the red clay soils of the Bonko farm area in the Sidamo region. Adem Bedane is a private washing station that purchases coffee cherry from the farms, typically paying higher prices than often less well-run cooperatives to get better qualities of fruit. This is high grown coffee (great for slow ripening and fine acidity) at 5,000 to well over 6,000 feet. In addition to being certified organic and shade grown, this coffee is vacuum packed at origin to maintain freshness and avoid taints. This coffee has a brilliant floral aroma with flavours of apricot and candy lemon. A complex and refreshing cup.
