Blend of Brazil from Humberto Zati and Ethiopia from Basha Bekele
Catuai IAC 62 & Heirloom
Notes of Red Berry, Hazelnut and Milk Chocolate
Misspent Youth currently consists of two naturals, a Brazilian Catuai from Humberto Zati and an Ethiopian from producer Basha Bekele. Humberto Zati is a small producer in the Cerrado region of Brazil. Humberto runs his two farms in the region alongside his wife and children. Basha Bekele owns a 3 hectare farm in the village of Bombe, Bensa district in southern Ethiopia. Basha runs the farm alongside his wife and children.
Both components of this blend are naturally processed coffees. Whole cherries are dried either on raised beds or patios in thin layers. Constant turning of the cherries is required to ensure even drying and to prevent the occurrence of defects.
The Brazilian lot from Humbeto Zati was sourced by Kamba Coffee. We sourced this through their custom sourcing scheme. Basha Bekele’s lot was sourced by Falcon Specialty.
