Ethiopia Illubabor Baaroo

from 9.00

The Place

Baaroo is the local Oromifa name for this cooperative in the far western part of Illubabor. Baaroo is part of a new initiative in Ethiopia to work direct at the coop level. The program is administered by a non-government organization that not only coordinates agronomists and managers for each of the coops they work with, but also has a business adviser assigned that helps the cooperative manage their debt, re-invest in quality improvements at the mill, and verifies distribution of income to all members. Baaroo is quite small and remote compared to the other excellent cooperatives in the Illubabor region.

This coffee is part of the Farm Gate program.

The Cup

The profile is balanced, with just enough floral, fruited notes and complex sugar browning. The dry aroma is like butterscotch, sweet and candy-like. Adding hot water brings an aroma of jasmine, along with caramel and some orange. Notes of fruit with chocolate. 

Processing: wet process
