Bombe Sidama is an Ethiopian single origin that produces a balanced and smooth cup with notes of floral black tea, bright citrus lemon and sweet strawberries.
Named after the region where the Testi Ayla Washing Station is located in Ethiopia. Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers deliver their cherry harvest by weight.
Testi Ayla Washing Station was founded in 2010 and became part of the Testi group in 2016. It now serves about 375 smallholder farmers in the village of Bombe in Sidama, near the Bombe Mountain. Producers here own an average of 2.5 hectares and grow varieties such as Mikicho and Setami, which are local coffees.
The birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia is revered for its beans. It produces some of the best single-origin coffees in the world because the environment is perfect to cultivate amazing coffee without the use of agricultural chemicals. High elevations in the southern mountainous region make for excellent growing conditions. The soil is deep, the vegetation is lush, and most coffees are grown in the shade and among other plants.
