Onyx Coffee Lab Ethiopia Bensa Shantawene Natural
Ethiopia Bensa Shantawene Natural
Story: For the second year in a row we are grateful to serve this beautiful natural from Shantawene Village via the Bombe washing station. Once again, this coffee is a star. It is processed at the Abore Washing Station where it is processed to special Onyx specifications. This is the large screen-size lot which offers the most vibrant and wild profile.
Roaster’s Notes: Star Fruit - Floral - Strawberry - Citrus Oil
Our Take: This year around, this coffee is still a tropical fruit smoothie but with a hint of fruit rind and edible flowers. We can't express enough how mush we enjoy this coffee.
Roaster Background: Onyx Coffee Lab, based out of Arkansas, is widely known as the industry leader in transparent and ethical green coffee buying. They don’t operate on payment contracts; everything is paid for 50% up front and 50% when it lands. They freely share what they pay per pound green and what they internally score each coffee at.
They’re also known for tacking on extra for producers doing good in their communities to help support those initiatives such as building schools and infrastructure.
