INFO FROM THE ROASTER
Balanced by a creamy body, this lovely coffee offers fruity and floral notes of strawberry, jasmine, juicy red grape and sweet-tart apricot. Focusing on quality and advancing traceable, single-producer Ethiopian coffees, Asnake Bekele partnered with Aliye Majo's farm on this delicious natural processed Sidama coffee. Harvested by hand by over 80 seasonal and daily laborers, spread onto raised beds to dry, turned six times per day over 15-21 days, and transported to local dry mills for final processing, this coffee has been carefully handled every step of its way from the plant to your cup.
Asnake Bekele first brought the idea of raised-bed natural processing to Sidama many years ago, and it was quickly dismissed by producers. Luckily, he persevered and now Sidama produces delicious natural process coffees that are enjoyed the world over. Recently Asnake's company partnered with the importer Catalyst Trade in hosting an event focused on teaching local producers financial management, advanced processing, and many other aspects of successful coffee production. Aliye Majo was in attendance, and a coffee partnership was born.

Red Rooster Coffee is my latest arrival from Bottomless Coffee! Red Rooster Coffee is located in Virginia, my neighbor north of me. I've heard good things about this coffee and I thought it would be a good option to break in my new DE1XL from Decent Espresso! If this coffee tastes half as good as it smells I'm in for a treat.
