Julekaffen vil bli brent og sent etter 1 desember.

Det er sannelig straks jul og i år tenkte vi at vi skulle være litt trofast til at vi ikke lanserer julekaffen før 1 desember. Vår julekaffe i år er også en BERRY KIND OF CHRISTMAS. Det vil si at vi satser tungt på fruktig kaffe med plenty deilige smaker. En god julefeiring er også lengten etter varme og litt sol, så derfor tenkte vi at denne kaffen skal være litt vår tribute til jula. For hva er vell jula uten koselig julemusikk, travle julegater, gode venner og nær familie, forberedelsene og til slutt refleksjonene som kommer med jula. Denne kaffen er direkte handlet med kooperativet og er en liten godsak jeg tror mange kommer til å like.

Litt om kooperativet.

Boledu Coffee is the operator of washing stations in the Yirgacheffe district (Konga, Gedeb, Aricha) and the Guji district. We have integrated supply chains with our farmer out-growers in both districts and are organically certified, maintaining traceability throughout the supply chain to ensure the best quality. Founded in 2018 by two friends Abiyot Ageze and Mebrahtu Aynalem, the company aims to work with farmers in partnership to showcase the best of their coffee by bringing the best practices for coffee preparation & management to Ethiopia and the regions where we work.

The coffee story

Boledu, founded in 2018, means "source" in the local language and combines over 12 years of experience in coffee from both Abyote Ageze and Mebrahtu Aynalem. "We have been producing and exporting both natural and washed high-end traceable qualities in our own washing stations located in the Guji zone, Dimtu Hamblea, Yirgacheffe, Aricha and Gedeb. We also have vertical agreements  in Uraga and in Sidamo, collecting quality coffees from different small farmers." 

By vertical integration, Mebrahtu means the coffee is sourced directly from the washing stations and not purchased from the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange (ECX). "We prefinance the washing station owners and he agrees to supply us. If I was to get a good coffee at the ECX I wouldn't necessarily be able to do it again in the future. There is no transparency. For consistency, I must have an agreement directly with the washing station. I also have an agronomist there to help prepare the coffees," he explains. 
"The farmers we work with have been working with us for a good time. Before the harvest, we train them and explain the standards of cherry collection for specialty coffee and the premiums that come with it. We have a quality supervisor at the washing stations looking into who is bringing good quality and who isn’t. Their job is really important! They know when someone mixes unripe cherries with the ripe ones. Up to 10% unripe is okay and we will sort them at a later stage, but if farmers bring more than that we know we might not work with them until they agree to the standards."

Internal prices for cherry have been high for the second consecutive year. In the Yirgacheffe area, buyers were paying 24 Ethiopian birr in November 2020 according to Mebrahtu. He says Boledu was paying around 25.50 birr to be above the competition and secure the supply. “However the farmers know they need to bring us the ripe cherries. And we buy from 10 to 16 thousand kilos of cherry every day during harvest season," he says.

Yirgacheffe Grade 3 Washed designates the highest quality you can source for high commercials from this region. This is a good option for roasters looking for the distinctive Yirgacheffe flavour, which you still find in grades 3 and 4, at a lower price point. The specialty grades are 1 and 2, followed by commercial grades ranging from 3 to 9. Though cherries will be bought in similar ways, grades are determined largely by the sorting process and cleaning of defects. Boledu's Yirgacheffe Grade 3 is sourced from Aricha washing station.

The process

This process takes a much longer time than washed processing, Time varies depending on humidity, temperature and amount of sunlight. Cherries are dried on African raised beds for proper airflow and the coffee itself must be frequently turned. When the desired moisture content is achieved (14 to 21 days depending on the weather), the dried cherries are milled and stored.
