ABOUT

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.

THE TERROIR OF LIMMU KOSSA

The Limmu Kossa terroir is located in the Oromo region, about 80 km north of the town of Jimma in the appellation of the same name. It is a natural coffee collected in a forest made up of various ancient species. The terroir has a rich soil and environment, which give the coffee its unique characteristics. It is prepared by the Dabessa brothers, two locally born boys who have built their coffee business up over the past ten years and now sell their production worldwide. The name “Limmu” is associated traditionally with the fully-washed coffee produced in the Jimma region, because it was the name of the region’s first washing station. The natural coffees were called “Jimma” coffees. Here we have paired the name Jimma with that of the Limmu Kossa terroir to better identify this natural, certified-organic forest coffee. Coffee production has increased the value of the terroir’s forest areas, and as a result is helping to preserve them. The farming and environmental preservation techniques employed are unique to the region and are another reason why our teams opted for this fruity coffee.
