The following details are from our friends at Catalyst Trade...
Along treacherous, barely-paved roads that pass the bustling town of Daye in the Bensa district of Sidamain Ethiopia is the village of Keramo, which has become famed for itsherbal-forward coffee profile, which we often relate to a Gin & Tonic cocktail.
We first began working there in the 2015-16 harvest, when that coffee was still lumped into Sidama(o) coffee. The next year, our partners and we broke Keramo into its own coffee... and WOW was it good! In fact, we were the first to bring Keramo coffee by that name to the world at large.The profile can be divisive, since it’s so botanical, but it also has lovely floral qualities and is intensely concentrated. Our Hayissa Olocho carries that legendary profile in part because, due to Catalyst Trade’s OCD Quality Control processes, it is entirely undiluted, unlike most coffees that reach roasteries from this area (Flavor Matching against type samples is the norm for most exporters who sell Keramo coffee).
Hayissa Olocho site has 30 drying tables and the management team also purchase cherries from high-quality focused nearby producers, resulting this year in 148 bags total production. Catalyst Trade bought every bag, breaking them into lots both washed and natural.
