In 2006 Daye Bensa Coffee was established by two brothers – Asefa & Mulugeta Dukamo who have been working in coffee in the Sidama region. They operate 16 washing stations and 4 dry mills within Sidama. The beans are collected from 626 farmers in Bombe Kebele (village) in the Bensa Woreda (district) of the Sidama zone. The village shares its name with the mountain of Bombe on which the coffee grows. Meticulous processing occurs at the Qunqna mill where it is sun-dried as whole cherry for 10-15 days creating a fruit-forward and complex flavor profile. In the cup, look for plum, a floral and fragrant retro nasal, caramel, and black tea.
