Hunda Oli means Òthe greatest,Ó in Oromo, the language of the Oromo people, who comprise the largest ethnic group in Ethiopia. The Kata Muduga Multi-Purpose FarmerÕs Cooperative Union was established in the Gera District, in the Jimma Zone, in August 2016. The cooperative processes coffee with eco-friendly Penagos machines, which use minimal water. One hundred sixty-one members of the co-op contributed to this coffee. The beans were fermented in soaking tanks for 12 hours, then dried for four to six hours on raised beds fitted only with mesh wire, to allow the water to drain off quickly. Afterward, netting was put over the mesh wire, and the parchment was dried on the tables for 9 to 11 days.
Our first Ethiopian coffee to carry and we are psyched about this one. Hunda Oli represents classic qualities of washed Ethiopians. Notes of tropical fruit and florals, with a earl grey tea like body, and a clover honey finish.
