Ethiopia Banko Dhadhato

  • This is a natural from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. You know what that means? Rock star coffee. [Confession here - more often than not, when we have an Ethiopian natural, that's what I'm drinking at home. Or when I'm not at home.] But anyway, Banko Dhadhato is the name of the cooperative. It's apparently one of the smallest coops in the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, with only 177 farmers. What makes this coffee so tasty? I haven't been there, so I'm going to guess. Indigenous varieties that go back in this soil for thousands of years. Very high elevation for coffee (5700-7500 feet). And the climate, I'm sure, is perfect for coffee - and for dry processing coffee. This coffee I bought from Royal Coffee (one of the brokers I buy from), and they told me that they like the way I roast the coffee better than anyone else! No, I made that up. They didn't say anything except, here's how much you owe us. But I know what they really meant.
