Founded in 1975, Buna Boka is one of the primary cooperatives of the Sidama Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union, one of Ethiopia’s best-known exporting bodies. The Sidama union is comprised of 53 coffee cooperatives and over 80,000 member households. Sidama has one of the most robust cooperative unions in the country with 53 member cooperatives. The formation of cooperative unions allowed farmer’s voting power and higher farm returns, while also giving them much easier and more affordable access to organic certifications. There are 1069 farmer members in Buna Boka, who average a single hectare of coffee cultivation each. The coffees, including this lot, tend to be very floral and cake-y sweet. This particular lot from Buna Boka boasts aroma and tasting notes of lemon-lime, jasmine, and toffee.
