GIVING BACK

Peach, Bergamot, Honeydew

Limited Time Offering - One of our favorite coffees is officially back in rotation, the mighty Bishan Dimo! Hailing from the densely-forested, southern Guji zone way up at 1800-2050 meters above sea level, Bishan Dimo is a fan favorite for a reason. This coffee has all the beautiful, classic magic that washed Ethiopian coffees are known for. At times soft and delicate, then comes the mouthfeel of honeydew or cantaloupe, leading into a tea-like, white floral finish. Coffees from the Guji zone are highly coveted here at Greater Goods, and we are so excited that coffees from this region are becoming more recognizable. Look for notes of peach, honey dew, and bergamot. Happy brewing!

Faysel A. Yonis built the Bishan Dimo washing station just six years ago. The only other mill in the area, which he had built but two years prior, was already at capacity. This region along the Mormora river was home to a few farmers growing indigenous Guji varieties. Their challenge was the nearest mill was a several kilometer trek to Shakiso town.

By establishing two mills in the region, offering training, and paying premium wages to producers with superior harvests, Faysel has improved the coffee and quality of life in the region. What started as a few farmers has grown to over a thousand. Focusing on quality has led to higher farmer income which has encouraged others in the area to shift their focus to coffee as well. Faysel and his team continues to invest in the community through the addition of a community school, ecological improvements, and partnerships with the government to bring better health care to the region.

Bishan Dimo is in the Dendi Uddo kebele (ward) of the Odo Shakiso woreda (district) in the Guji zone. Set on three hectares of land, it is slightly smaller than its sister washing station, Mulish. Bishan Dimo offers fully washed coffee as well as natural coffee. Recently, Faysel (the founder of Testi Coffee) and the Testi team have been working on small, fermented lots in Bishan Dimo. However, the washing station’s main output is still washed grade-one coffee.

The coffee itself comes from farms sitting at altitudes ranging from 1850 to 2050 m.a.s.l. The trees are a mix of indigenous varieties of the Guji area as well as disease-resistant varieties from the Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC).

The washing station trains farmers to ensure cherries are picked at the perfect time for highest flavor and quality. If farmers have difficulty bringing their cherries to the washing station, the washing station arranges transport to make sure the cherries arrive at the station within a day – also important for maximum quality. And lastly, the washing station pays a premium to farmers who bring better coffee – encouraging the farmers to improve their methods.
