ETHIOPIA DEBEKA: Specialty Coffee Roasted at Meron



Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Ethiopia freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.


The farm/farmer

In Ethiopia, Kamba source coffees from Israel Degfa and Kerchanshe. Israel is one of Kamba’s shareholders and the owner of the Ethiopian export company, Kerchanshe.

The Debeka coffee began back in 2017 when Israel joined Kamba on an origin trip to Brazil to explore new and exciting processing methods to bring back to his farms and mills in Ethiopia.


About the coffee

This coffee is produced at Israel Degfa’s private farm, Debeka. With only 180 raised beds and just over 100 staff during harvest season, this is one of Israel’s smallest projects.

Initially, the coffee was grown under a sprawling one-hectare greenhouse with all agronomic practices being computer-controlled. Disease-resistant varieties and other experiments are also enacted at Debeka. This lot is from the second harvest of this experiment and the profile has continued to improve.
