ETHIOPIA KOLLA BOLCHA
The Kolla Bolcha washing station is still relatively new (and completely new on our offering list), but has already grabbed a ton of attention for its overwhelmingly stellar quality. Located in Western Ethiopia in the Agaro region, Kolla Bolcha neighbors one of the most successful stations in all of the west, Biftu Gudina. At Kolla Bolcha they pick from the local wild coffee forests which are made up of mostly landrace varieties (natural mutations). Washed and pristine, Kolla Bolcha is surely going to make a lasting impression on you.

More About This Coffee
Kolla Bolcha was developed through USAID’s Technoserve project. Built around investment financing, Technoserve outfitted many municipalities in Western Ethiopia with their own washing station equipment to start creating and marketing their own specific region’s coffees.
This work has spawned many stations that are now perennial favorites across the coffee landscape. And while newer, Kolla Bolcha is quickly garnering the same esteem.
The coffees of Kolla Bolcha are wild grown and range from trees at 1900 masl all the way up to 2200 masl. This means dense, big coffees. Through expert wet-processing, you’ll find this coffee is filled with citruses like mandarin orange, florals and an herbaceous quality like lemongrass tea.
