Bildimoo means “red, clay soil” in the Oromiffa language. This concept represents lactic coffees that taste like lychee, cinnamon, pineapple, cola, ginger Buku Sayisa is a coffee that first caught our attention in 2019, in a big way! This year is no different with this lot expressing such amazing clarity, crisp bright fruit with layers of florals and complexity.
Buku Sayisa means “Blessed Valley” and is the name of the valley in which the site is situated. This area of Hambela Wamena is some of the highest altitudes for coffee growing, at 2350 masl. The farmers delivering cherry here deliver on horseback due to the uneven terrain around the site. We have seen a lot of development and investment at this station, putting in place protocols to ensure better drying and building a new dry mill in Hambela.

Natural sundried, also called “natural process” or “dry process,” means drying coffee cherries whole without the intervention of water or machines to remove any of the fruit. Prior to drying, the cherries are picked, floated in water, and sorted to remove any under-ripe or overripe fruit.
