Welcome to Amaro Gaayo Buna

This exceptional coffee is produced by Asnakech Thomas, Ethiopia’s only female coffee grower, miller and exporter. Brought up in the Amaro district of the Southern Region of Ethiopia, Asnakech, as one of the Ethiopian diaspora returned from abroad to go into farming, and especially for growing and exporting speciality organic coffee. A prime objective is also to improve the livelihoods and the wellbeing of the people of Amaro.

The many Amaro coffee arabica genetic varieties, relatively light population, waterfalls (the Gaayo in our name) and highland bamboo forests are among the unique features of the area.

Altitude:  1100-1800 meters. Harvest: October to February. Varietals: of coffea arabica.

The semi-washed and sun-dried coffee production is carefully supervised, sorted, and milled at her facilities, so she has remarkable control over her coffee.  As a lightly roasted and brewed coffee, the Amaro Gaayo Buna is a fine sonata of baking spices and aromatic woods. Imagine a grand piano. Now imagine playing a descending F major arpeggio over several octaves.  Now imagine that, instead of sounds, the piano produces alternating aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, cedar, and maple. Now imagine buying a bag, going home, and making a careful pourover of the Amaro Gaayo Buna.

CUP CHARACTERISTICS: Lush, blackberry and blueberry fruit flavors, powerful aggressive and complex acidity, with notes of both dry, red wine and lemons. Layers of citrus fruits, mostly grapefruit. Thick body, chocolate mouth-feel. A real speciality coffee.
