Bensa Segera :: Ethiopia
Heleanna is known for her love of experimentation and willingness to take risks in order to create a transcendent cup of coffee. Her farming and processing practices are the absolute gold standard, diverse and honed over time. Another process we’re always excited about is her “Kenya process,” which was inspired by the dry fermentation practices she witnessed in Kenya in order to preserve water.
Motivated by the same concern, Heleanna’s Kenya process coffees are depulped, then fermented in cement tanks for 36 hours before drying, bringing the same cleanliness along with a distinct spice character.
