FARMER: Dogo Bule Hora community
ELEVATION: 2100, 2,200 masl
PROCESSING: Natural, dried on raised beds
WE TASTE: Blueberry, spice, lemon
Dogo is another stellar naturally processed from Guji. This community is at a crazy high altitude for growing coffee and you can taste the complexity and intensity in the cup. They have also done an impeccable job at maintaining the terroir even though it is naturally processed. There is very little boozy or fermenty taste in this coffee, just an increase in sweetness and body as compared with a washed coffee.
Here is more info from Crop to Cup, the company we worked with to import this coffee:
The high altitude washing altitude washing station collects from 1,000-1,200 smallhodler farmers living nearby in this western part of the famed Guji Zone (part of the larger Oromia Region). The small village of Dogo sits 20km northeast of the larger town of Bule Hora. Some coffees here at the Dogo washing station go to washed while others go straight to the drying table for the natural processed lots. Farmers deliver to one of our lonstanding processing partners in Ethiopia (Oboleyan), who excel in QC from cherry collection all the way up to export milling. One unique payment program here allows a bonus to be paid to farmers during the rainy summer season (offseason, prior to next harvest). This contributes to better cash flow for farmers and allows farmers to prepare for the upcoming harvest season (labor, farm management, etc).
