Five Ways Coffee Roasters
Ethiopia - Bombe - Natural
The "Bomb" pays homage to the Bombe mountains in Sidamo, the region where the farmers reside, and work on harvesting and selling their cherries. This area is home to two primary communities, Shantawene and Keramo. The lots produced here are traceable micro-lots, thanks to the community-based exporter, Daye Bensa.
The wet mill operations are skilfully managed by a team that includes Atkilt Dejene, a female agronomist who has also contributed her expertise to the esteemed Gesha Village project, among others. Additionally, Eyasu Bekele, a processing specialist with whom we have collaborated on the successful Reko Koba project for several years, is part of the team. While the Bombe washing station has a maximum capacity of 2.5 million kilograms of cherries, it has maintained a steadfast commitment to prioritising exceptional quality over quantity.
This specific lot has undergone a shade drying process as a natural coffee, sheltered under a mesh canopy to create a slower and gentler drying period. This approach has extended the drying time to 25 days, with the same group of individuals diligently turning the tables every 15 minutes to ensure even drying and consistent quality.
The resulting profile is characterised by sweetness akin to passionfruit (pornstar martini), accompanied by a creamy texture reminiscent of whipped cream.

- Choose the right container: It's important to store your coffee beans in an airtight container. Look for a container made of a material that won't absorb odors, like glass or ceramic. Avoid using plastic containers, as they can impart a plastic-like taste to the coffee.
- Keep the container away from light: Coffee beans are sensitive to light, which can cause them to degrade more quickly. Store your coffee container in a dark place, such as a pantry or cupboard.
- Keep the container away from heat: Heat can also cause coffee beans to degrade. Avoid storing your coffee container near a heat source, such as a stove or oven.
- Store at room temperature: Coffee beans should be stored at room temperature, between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid storing coffee beans in the refrigerator or freezer, as moisture can cause them to spoil and lose their flavor.
- Use whole beans: It's best to store whole coffee beans rather than ground coffee. Ground coffee has a larger surface area, which makes it more vulnerable to oxidation and degradation.
- Avoid air exposure: Exposure to air can cause coffee beans to oxidize, which can lead to a stale or sour taste
