Basha is a young farmer from Bensa, Sidama. A southern region of Ethiopia. He is a third generation producer, who now owns and manages a farm that belonged to his parents. A young coffee producer, who is dedicated to quality and constant innovation.
Basha is a part of Asnake Bekele’s well known producing group. Asnake himself, is celebrated for pioneering, and establishing natural process techniques in the Sidama region.
A few short years ago, releasing a directly sourced natural processed Ethiopian coffee would have seemed unimaginable. We are over the moon to say we have done it twice.
In 2021 Seven Seeds and our supply partners, Coqua Trading, shifted our buying approach, moving away from larger producer cooperatives and focusing on establishing relationships with smaller, single-lot producers. Farmers like Basha Bekele, who we could continue to support each year.
Basha Bekele was a fan-favourite on our filter menu this time last year. This season's release is roasted for espresso brewing. Full-bodied, with a warm syrupy finish, the coffee presents mind-blowing tropical fruits in a crowd-friendly kind of way.
