From Coffee Manufactory:
Hunda Oli makes up 20% of our new O1 Espresso offering. This new cooperative is located in a forested area of Agaro in the Oromia region of Western Ethiopia. At a soaring altitude of 2000 meters above sea level with heirloom varieties on their doorsteps, it is by no means surprising that the coffee from this cooperative is excellent, with deeply complex nuances dominating the cup. The Hunda Oli smallholder farmers typically have less than 1 hectare of coffee that is shade grown beneath old-growth indigenous trees. In contrast to the heavily managed farms of many Latin producing regions, Ethiopian coffee is uniquely wild, with heirloom varieties of every shape and size scattered under natural forest cover. These small-holders are dispersed around the washing station but farmers are able to deliver coffee cherries to one of the cooperative’s many collection points. Many members point to this as a tremendous benefit, as previously they were forced to walk long distances to the nearest middleman, who could then offer whatever price he/she wished, usually to the disadvantage of the farmer. After the washing station purchases the cherry it is pulped within 4-8 hours in a Colombian-manufactured Penagos machine. The coffee then soaks underwater overnight before being washed again in the morning and put onto shade covered drying tables. We can thank Hunda Oli for the complex sweetness we find in our new O1.
