Bifdu Gudina, Ethiopia
Peach, Honey, Violet
Everyone's favourite Ethiopian is back! Sparkling, sleek, and uniquely spiced, Bifdu Gudina really is the gift that keeps on giving. Each year this coffee retains its distinct flavour profile, refreshingly clean and delicate.
Bifdu Gudina is a new cooperative established in 2012. They are located in an area becoming known for very flavour intense and spicy coffees with unique attributes. The management is strong and they succeeded on quality production from year one. A lot of the coffees are grown around and above 2000 meters above sea level. They have waste water treatment based on vetiver grass naturally filtrating the water from the production before it goes into the pits and finally the ground.
This coffee is a result of a sustainable technoserve project in the west based on transparency and increased quality production. Technoserve is an NGO supporting the farmers in setting up washing stations and new cooperative structures. This project has revealed a new great range of coffee flavours not found elsewhere. Technoserve’s coffee initiative is a project measuring their success in the value and quality of the coffees produced and the farmers increase their coffee income. All cooperative members qualify for second payment. This has so far contributed to a significant increase in payment for the local coffee farmers.
The Bifdu Gudina from Ethiopia truly creates a buzz around Climpsons HQ every year and it's no wonder, with it's Violet florals and clean, peachy sweetness. We love this coffee and hope you do too, try it on a V60 at a 1:17.8 ratio to bring out all of its character!
