Jabanto – Natural SundriedKochere, Ethiopia $19.00 | 12 oz bag
Established in 2018, the Jabanto group is made up of 29 small-scale coffee farmers from the Kochere and Yirgacheffe woredas in the Gedeo Zone in Ethiopia. After changes to the Ethiopian coffee market in 2017, these farmers, among hundreds of other small-scale coffee farmers, were permitted to sell their coffee directly on national and international markets. Most of these farmers produce natural sundried coffee. For this lot, coffees from four neighboring kebeles in Kochere were combined—Biloya, Buno, Kore, and Ononcho. These farmers are experts in post-harvest processing techniques that resulted in flavors of raspberry, pastry, and citrus.

This selection has a classic profile of coffees from Kenya—blackcurrant, citrus, and savory notes—but with a clarity not found in many Kenyan coffees.
