Damo Village Anaerobic Natural

Daye Bensa was established in 2006 by two brothers, Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo who have been working as coffee suppliers from Sidamo region. Sidamo, Ethiopia, a place known for its rich vegetation, has ample rainfall, optimal temperatures, and
fertile soil. This micro lot grows on the slopes of the Shanta Golba Mountain with an elevation of 1860 – 2160 masl.

Damo Station acquires red cherries from nearby farmers and processes in a variety of ways. Equipped with eco-friendly
depulping and pressure sorting machinery dedicated for washed coffee, African beds, and fermentation tanks for anaerobic processing. They also have compost and a dedicated eco-friendly sanitation station for washed wastage and natural treatment. The station provides working opportunities for 100 people, provides the main income for the 381 nearby farmers during coffee harvesting seasons and pays 20-30% more than the average amount for coffee producers.

The fermentation tanks are built in a shade, to provide a comfortable environment for the workers and to protect the cherries from rain and high exposure to direct sunlight and heat. This micro-lot has been processed anaerobically and have flavour profile with an aroma of jasmine and yellow flowers, sweet tasting notes of peach and tropical fruit jam. The cup presents a delicate acidity, very juicy and sweet, with med to full body, and incredibly balanced.
