The Chalchissa farm covers over 150 hectares and is located deep in the heart of a beautiful forest in the Jimma appellation. It is born of a small family farm run by the father of its two owners. Inspired by their farmer father, Mesfin and Yidnekachew Dabessa invested in the Chalchissa farm 10 years ago to replicate the family business on a larger scale. Today they produce a fully-washed coffee with subtle notes of lemon, cane sugar and honey. It is a coffee harvested by hand by farmers that possess a meticulous know-how, which is becoming increasingly rare. The coffee trees at Chalchissa benefit from a rich natural environment. The forest’s unique flora produces a high-altitude coffee of a superior quality, and Belco is its only distributor in Europe.
