Bale Mountain is a fairly new private farm that sits at 1900-200masl. Currently, they're harvesting from about 100 hectares of the coffee tree while more trees are being planted.
The farm grows a mixture of local varieties and native forest varieties that are identified as Ethiopian Heirloom.
Harvesting is done by the family members where they are hand-sorted to remove the unripe and overripe cherries. The harvest is then sorted again during the soaking and drying process to ensures only the best coffee is sent out.
All our coffee beans are roasted on the FROCO FR15-I. A machine that gives us a ton of information like the ability to track temperatures of the beans, drum, and airflow just to name a few. This means we obtain and are able to monitor with a lot of information to ensure we can roast coffee with a high level of consistency.
We pack our whole beans coffee and ground coffee in a 250g airtight packaging. With a smaller packaging, it'll help to keep the coffee fresh and it prevents exposing a large amount of coffee to the environment which can change the flavours of the coffee.
We don't use any flavourings in our products/coffee. What you see on the packaging and our website are taste notes, our ways of depicting nuances of flavours in the coffee beans. So don't worry if you don't get the taste notes, as every taste buds bring a slightly different outcome.
