Abana Coffee is a 300-hectare Estate and social business started by the Omran family, in 2009, in the Gera area of Limu, Ethiopia. Abana translates to “our fathers” in Arabic, where the name pays homage to the deep roots and heritage of the coffee that traces back centuries to Ethiopia. While several factors play a role in sustainably producing specialty coffee, Abana quickly found that the quality of the coffee improved by prioritizing the people, environment, and community.
Abana supports about 100 kids in the area for schooling (32 live on the farm), hosts several infrastructure development and medical projects, provides electricity for the villages around, and donates tens of thousands of seedlings each year to small local farmers. Abana pays fair wages to all their partners, including the educational development of the workers on their farm. Abana has won eco-friendly awards for how they manage waste, not deforest, and minimize water usage.
Wild Peach is one of Abana’s Sulladjah lots and has what we consider to be the traditional crisp Ethiopian profile. Sulladjah is the name given to the highest part of the farm, where a community of people live. It has a dense forest and a natural freshwater spring that emerges straight from the mountainside. Although Sulladjah is a location, these lots are a combination of coffees from many areas of the estate. All Abana’s coffees are grown and processed at their estate. Each lot is sorted by hand multiple times and processed with attention to detail before milling in Addis Ababa. All sorting and milling are completed to Grade 1 to less than 1% defect.
This lot underwent a washed process which boasts very clean, complex, and sweet flavors indicative of Ethiopian coffee. Floral and peach notes are apparent with beautiful brightness and a nicely structured acidity. This is our first year working with Abana, and we couldn’t be more excited to share this offering with you.
