This coffee is really interesting and unique! Instead of the traditional method of growing coffee on a farm, this coffee is grown in the wild. This coffee is grown in the Bale National forest in Ethiopia. Farmers can grow Coffee and participate in the industry without even owning land to grow their own. This is done through Participatory Forest Management Co-operatives (PFMCs). Similar to normal coops, PCFMCs help facilitate healthy farming in the wild. By growing in the wild, you have varietals of coffee that aren't found on a farm. Aside from the uniqueness of this coffee, I chose to offer it because it is a great natural Ethiopian to try if you have never had a natural process coffee before. Most natural Ethiopians are very fruity, which can really turn people off. If you are still new to specialty coffee.
