The aroma of juicy forest blueberries envelops the air, with sweet notes of rhubarb and vanilla dancing in the background…
Flying high over the Ethiopian region of Guji, the eye stumbles across the rapids of the river Turo, as well as the nearby “Anasora” washing station. Around a thousand local smallholder farmers belonging to the Oromo ethnic group rely on this station to have their coffee processed. Israel Degfa, the owner of “Anasora” and a highly respected member of the community, not only turns the local coffee cherries into some of the world’s finest beans, but also supports those who help this wonder of the coffee world come into existence.

Frequently Asked Questions
This coffee is roasted by our partners in Lithuania, in one of the finest local roasteries.
These coffee beans are suited well for all brewing methods, be it espresso, filter, or infusing straight in a cup.
Specialty coffee includes only the world’s best-rated varieties. Who rates it and how do they do that, you wonder? Well, the rating is in the hands of certified coffee tasters. They evaluate the quality of the coffee they’re presented with based on the scale created by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA). Four criteria are assessed: origin, the appearance of green beans, the aroma of the prepared brew, and its flavour characteristics. Only coffees that end up scoring somewhere between 80 and 100 points can be rightfully referred to as “specialty”.
The natural process involves drying the coffee bean whole, that is, together with the pulp. Coffee processed in this way is sweeter, juicier and particularly full-bodied.
“Ethiopia Burtukaana” is one of our finest African specialty coffees. Like most coffees from this region, it boasts some vivid acidity, which is valued by coffee connoisseurs all over the world. Keep in mind that this sort of acidity has nothing to do with the overly acidic taste of low-quality coffee. Unlike the latter, this one’s pleasantly sweet, fruity and deliciously berryish. Give it a try and see for yourself!
