Ethiopian Shentebene Bensa • Washed Processing• Medium Roast
Ethiopia Sidama Shentabene Bensa G2 is sourced from 650 family-owned farms organized around the Bensa washing station located in Bensa a woreda located in the Sidama Zone within the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Region (SNNPR) State, Ethiopia. Producers deliver ripe cherries to Bensa mill every day during the harvest season. At the washing station coffee is carefully sorted, pulped, fermented, and then washed. The wet beans in parchment are placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2 to 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process. Depending on weather, the beans are dried for 12 to 15 days until the moisture in the coffee beans is reduced to 11.5 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
