BEHIND THE CUP
In a remote corner of the world, where the verdant hills whisper secrets of a time gone by, there lies a story woven into the very fabric of the earth. It's a tale of passion, of dreams distilled into a cup, of a vision that transcended the boundaries of a simple beverage. This is the story of Daye Bensa.
Imagine a young Asefa, his hands etched with the toils of harvest, carrying the weight of his family's legacy in each coffee bean. In these beans, he saw not just a crop, but a path to a future where the distance from farm to cup was but a fleeting journey. His dream, a reverie born amidst the lush Ethiopian landscape, was to bring the world closer to the heart of coffee – one wash station at a time.
In 1997, this dream materialised into reality, with the first washing station in Girja, a stone's throw from his childhood home. Like an artist perfecting his masterpiece, Asefa, alongside his brother Mulugeta, expanded their vision, painting the landscape with a network of washing stations and farms, each a testament to their unwavering commitment to quality and community.
As you sip this exceptional micro-lot coffee, let your senses be enveloped by the nuanced symphony of its heritage. Each bean, washed with care, carries with it the legacy of the Dukamo brothers – a legacy of nurturing, of empowering local farmers, and of a relentless pursuit of excellence.
This coffee isn't just a brew; it's a journey. A journey that traverses through the hills of Bensa, Bura, and Chire, whispering tales of the hands that nurtured it. It's a voyage through time, where each sip is a step alongside Asefa and Mulugeta, under the Ethiopian sun, amidst the symphony of nature.
As Asefa's eldest son, Kenean, steps into this legacy, the story evolves, intertwining the wisdom of the past with the innovation of the future. This coffee, a product of generations of dreams and toil, now finds its way to you.
