Compagnia dell'Arabica Ethiopia - Harenna Forest Wild Coffee - Coffee with a high aromatic intensity with hints of citrus and notes of flowers and aromatic herbs. Medium body with a pleasant aftertaste of vanilla. Ethiopia is the country of origin of coffee and the only one in the world where plants are found in the wild. The forest of Harenna, one of the largest in Ethiopia, is located in the mountains of the magnificent Bale National Park, 350 kilometers south of the capital Addis Ababa. At an altitude of about 1800 meters here the Arabica coffee grows spontaneously, in the shade of tall trees. Every family, for millennia, goes to the forest, collects cherries, dries them in the sun on suspended beds, roasts them, kneads them in a mortar and offers coffee to guests following an atavistic ceremony, a solemn rite, with a strong symbolism of respect and hospitality. The producers pick the ripe fruit by hand, selecting the most red cherries, respecting the relationship between man and nature. The Harenna Wild Coffee Presence involves 60 families, promotes the shortening of the supply chain, the protection of quality and territory and guarantees dignity and a fair recognition to the people involved.
