Hunda Oli means “the greatest,” in Oromo, the language of the Oromo people, who make up the largest ethnic group in Ethiopia.
The Kata Muduga Multi-Purpose Farmer’s Cooperative Union was established in the Gera District, in the Jimma Zone, in August 2016. The cooperative processes co ee with eco-friendly Penagos machines, which use minimal water. One hundred sixty-one members of the co-op contributed to this coffee.
The beans were fermented in soaking tanks for 12 hours, then dried for four to six hours on raised beds fitted only with mesh wire, to allow the water to drain off quickly. Afterward, netting was put over the mesh wire, and the parchment was dried on the tables for 9 to 11 days.
The Hunda Oli boasts delicate floral notes, but as the cup cools the profile shifts towards a tremendously juicy coffee with notes of tangerine, lychee, and peach.
