Origin Story

Hamasho Washing Station

We purchased this special coffee through a private auction of innovation lots held by our friends at Catalyst Coffee, a dynamic and vertically-integrated coffee importing company that has been working closely with producers in Ethiopia for that past decade. The ethos for Catalyst’s innovation program directs them to identify, preserve, and ultimately amplify the potential of coffees by utilizing unique processing methods.

This coffee was produced by smallholder farmers in the Bensa area of Sidama in Southern Ethiopia, and processed at the Hamasho washing station. As a result of many producers having success in Ethiopia’s annual coffee quality competition, Cup of Excellence, Bensa has become a widely recognized coffee area over the past several years. Managed by Asefa Dukamo Korma, Hamasho, which translates to “serpent”, is situated on the banks of a wide and slow moving river that resembles a snake.

White Honey

Why We Love This Coffee

This coffee was processed using the honey or pulped-natural method. After harvesting and pulping, trace amounts of fruit were left clinging to the beans before being transferred to raised beds. As the coffee dries, the sugars in the remaining fruit becomes sticky, taking on a honey-like appearance and imparting sweet fruit flavors into the coffee.

This lot is classified as a white honey processed lot; the color correlates to the amount of fruit retained on the parchment after pulping. White honey coffees retain the least amount of fruit relative to the other honey process color classifications.
