Embark on a flavorful expedition with our Ethiopia Bekele Belachew Murago Lot #2, a key component of our Wild Thing blend. Nestled in the picturesque Sidama highlands, with elevations reaching from 2,260 to 2,360 meters, is where you’ll find Bekele Belachew's 6-hectare family haven. This haven is where ancestral traditions govern the nurturing of every bean; where each coffee cherry is handpicked and naturally sun-dried, preserving the untouched essence of the fertile Ethiopian soil.
The spotlight shines on the coffee varietals of 74110, 74112, and Heirloom in this lot. These varietals owe their existence to the pioneering efforts at the Jimma Agricultural Research Center in the 1970s. The 74110 and 74112 varieties were particularly recognized for their resilience, strength, and resistance to coffee berry disease. Hailing from the lush Metu-Bishari forest, these varietals were cataloged in 1974 and unveiled in 1979, celebrated for their ability to thrive in their native habitat. The Heirloom varietal, a revered member of the Ethiopian coffee lineage, is cherished for its unique and intricate flavor spectrum.
