About the Producer:
The Daye Bensa company was created by two brothers, Assefa Dukamo and Mulugeta Dukamo, about fifteen years ago. Determined to reveal the high potentials of coffees of their country, they have, over the years, developed a company which today holds an important place in the production, collection and export of coffee from Sidama. Daye Bensa currently manages two farms in this region, 19 washing stations in the producing region and 5 coffee preparation warehouses located in the city, notably in Addis Ababa. They work with more than 1,400 small producers from whom they select the most beautiful cherries. The company also organizes regular training for these producers to further improve the quality of these coffees. These solid establishments, at different stages of the industry, allow Daye Bensa to offer qualitative coffees on the international scene. They centralize their activities from their headquarters in Addis Ababa, which brings together 15 people with varied skills, quality, logistics, finance, export etc. As a sign of recognition for this applied work, two of their coffees were selected this year for the Cup of Excellence 2020.
This coffee is perfect for espresso due to its medium roast makes it a balanced coffee as it gives it a generous body, powerful aromas and a round cup .
On the other hand, light-roasted coffees develop a distinct acidity and a more complex range of aromas in cup than medium-roasted coffees or dark-roasted coffees which develop a well-known bitter taste.
