The Bashasha Project
Belgian Aeropress Championship 2019
Region: Agaro, Jimma, Western Ethiopia
Producer(s): Temam Aba Mecha (Rutuma Farmers Cooperative Society)
About the Bashasha Project
In the past year new coffee laws have been enacted in Ethiopia, allowing individual farmers to sell directly to overseas buyers. This offers a unique opportunity to increase the traceability of Ethiopian coffee. 32Cup, our trading partner, worked together with the farmers of the Rutuma Cooperative around the town of Bashasha to produce a range of micro lots, traceable to individual farmers.
For the 2019 Belgian Aeropress Championship WAY Coffee Roasters partnered with Caffènation and Mok Coffee to select this lot produced by Temam Aba Mecha as the competition coffee - because of its multidimensional complexity, which will allow competitors to really express their personal style.
But don't worry if you won't be competing in the BAC, you can still get your hands on a bag of this outstanding coffee. Just now that we won't be sharing any cupping notes untill after the competition ;-)
