Our Single Origin Subscription coffee for September 2023 is Ethiopia Daye Bensa! 

The brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo of Daye Bensa have done it again with another brilliant Ethiopian Natural coffee! From Shantawene Village, Ethiopia and more specifically their Buncho Site, this coffee is fruity and floral and a great example of why coffee from Ethiopia is so special. We hope you enjoy this coffee just as much as we do!

Daye Bensa exports coffee from "out-growers" (or smallholders) in three villages: Shantawene, Karamo and Bombe. Daye Bensa stretches between 1,900 and 2,217 MASL. The delivered cherry comes from out-growers' farms higher up the mountain, between 2,000 and 2,400 meters.

Daye Bensa owns 15 washing stations across three districts, and they handle all the coffee they export. Its two farms, in Kaffaand Sidamo, are Organic, UTZ, Rainforest Alliance and C.A.F.E. practices certified.

Each year Daye Bensa hosts an Out-Growers Day. Nearly 1,000 farmers gather to celebrate their harvests and to receive second payments for their coffee cherry contributions. Daye Bensa additionally rewards the top three farmers from each of the three villages with certificates and cash prizes, recognizing them for consistently delivering high-quality cherries.

Going forward, Daye Bensa is hoping to work with more and more farmers, particularly women! We are stoked for this! Woo! Cheers to women power and great coffee!

    SD’s Best Coffee

    I can’t sing praise for Nostalgia single origin loudly enough. I’ve tried basically all of the local SD roasters, and haven’t found any that deliver such consistently amazing beans. So far every single coffee offered on the rotating Single Origin Subscription has made my day every single day I make it. Most are light roast, and their roasting and processing does an incredible job of developing and protecting every single one of the delicate and interesting flavors their top-tier beans express. The subscription is nice because I always have coffee waiting for me, and it’s exciting to see what the new offering is every month! One tip — get it delivered more often than you’d think, because you’ll be VERY sad if you run out and have to wait for the next round!
