Women's Sidamo - Ethiopia
Honeysuckle / Vanilla / Peach
The Bulessa Washing Station is run by Tizita Bizuneh and managed by a team of 15 full time female workers plus up to 100 additional seasonal workers during harvest season. The coffee itself is grown between 1,650 – 1,850masl and again the majority of the smallholders are women.
Tizita started the project with the goal of empowering women working in coffee. From picking and production, through to management of the station. This has now become a reality at Bulesa. As the project has evolved, the scheme has developed and started providing educational and agricultural workshops for children and women across the wider community.
Further to the empowerment project, the contributing farmers are also registered and a part of the Kerchanshe support network, set up by Israel Degfa. This network helps smallholders and their families with access to healthcare, education and agricultural support.
A well balanced Ethiopian coffee, with a distinctive Honeysuckle aroma, notes of vanilla and gentle peach acidity making it ideal for a cold brew this summer.
