Organic Ethiopia Bedhatu Jibicho comes to us from our good friends at Royal Coffee in Emeryville, CA. Grown in Worka, a village in the southern Gedeb District of southern Ethiopia, this coffee is unique for a few reasons. First and foremost, it bears the name of its producer, Bedhatu Jibicho, a woman in her eighties who has farmed coffee for over fifty years. Single farmer lots are not unheard of in Ethiopia, but are certainly rare, making Bedhatu’s coffee a real treat. Second, the coffee is processed as a natural, or dried in the fruit coffee. When prepared well, this method gives coffee a unique fruit forward profile, and as we’ll discuss, this natural is prepared extraordinarily well. Here’s what Royal has to say about Bedhatu’s coffee:

“Bedhatu was born and raised in Worka where her farm is also located. She started working in coffee in the 1960s when the government gave land to her husband. Bedhatu’s takes great pride in the fact that she has managed the farm operations for over 50 years, even before her husband passed away in 1991. As Bedhatu is now over 80 years old, her adult children have started to become more involved in continuing her rich tradition of coffee production. The family plans to use the premiums from coffee sales to expand production and start an export company.”

On the cupping table, this coffee astounded us with its intense notes of banana chips and blackberry jam, buttressed by incredible pink lemonade-like acidity and deep sugary sweetness. This medium-light roast is delicious in all brewing methods, but really stands out as a filter coffee. Bedhatu’s coffee is one of the loveliest we’ve come across all year, and we’re extremely excited to share it with you.
