ETHIOPIA • TABU BURKA
You might be noticing a tendency for very berry-forward, delightfully floral and well-articulated naturally processed coffees here at Quietly. From first sip, I loved Tabu Bukra’s juicy pomegranate and blackberry notes, cascading against honeysuckle and hibiscus flavours. The cup rounds out with gooey fig, rich brown sugar, candied lemon and a lingering milk chocolate finish. It is sticky and sweet, like a perfect date square.
Tadesse Edema established the Tabu Burka station in 2006 for local farmers. As one of the first in the area, he has cultivated long-term and rewarding relationships with his 300 contributing producers. Tadesse cites the intricate mill work, carefully planted new trees, and the station’s high standards for cherry selection for the continually improving and deeply impressive output.
