Ethiopia Duromina by Kata Muguda Co-operative Union
Tastes: Tea, hops, herbal
Variety: Local Landraces
Process: Washed and dried on raised beds
Importer: Red Fox Coffee Merchants
Duromina operates under the leadership of the Kata Muduga cooperative union, whose continued investment in the coops that it leads makes possible some of the most delicious and coveted coffees in the world.
Thanks to Technoserve’s initial investment and the stellar leadership within Duromina and Kata Muduga, Duromina’s processing is immaculate, leading to an incredible showcase of the coffee’s natural potential year after year for a ridiculously long time off harvest. The secret? After Penagos processing equipment mechanically removes most of the fruit and mucilage from the seeds, they soak overnight in fiberglass tanks, allowing any remaining sugars to be fully removed from their surface so that the coffees are perfectly clean by the time they hit the drying beds for the eight-plus days they’ll need to dry.
