Ethiopia Natural Sidamo Durato Bombe Grade 1


Starting at $8.75 / lb
As low as $7.50 / lb
raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

In 2006 Daye Bensa Coffee was established by two brothers - Asefa & Mulugeta Dukamo who have been working within the Sidama region in coffee. They operate 16 washing stations and 4 dry mills within Sidama. The Durato Bombe is collected from 626 farmers in Durato of Bombe Kebele (village) in the Bensa Woreda (district) of the Sidama zone. The village shares it's name with the mountain of Bombe on which the coffee grows. Meticulous processing occurs at the Qunqna mill where it is sun dried as whole cherry for 10-15 days creating a fruit-forward and complex flavor profile. 

This coffee from the Bombe mountain has surprisingly huge body for a natural processed heirloom coffee. Very bright and very sweet, expect notes of blueberry, watermelon, strawberry, and peach.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

Add me to the list of people who love this coffee. Have been on the search for a natural Ethiopian with that sweet fruit forward flavor since this time last year, and have only been disappointed. Well. My first roast with this and I am back to buy more before it’s all gone. On only 4 days rest it’s already a great example of a fruit forward Ethiopian. I took it 1:45 into first crack with just the last few cracks happening in the cooling tray.

I initially bought this coffee because someone on Facebook group was raving about it that it is blueberry "bomb". I was very disappointed. It is not. It does have very subtle blueberry/pineapple notes. That's about it. It is sweet but not very fruity (even at a lighter roast). I've purchased equally sweet or sweeter, and fruitier Ethiopia coffee for about $2 less per lb. The reviewer who wrote that this coffee is the "most fruity" coffee he ever had, apparently has not tasted very fruity coffee in the past. I will not be buying this again. This coffee is decent but overpriced for what it has to offer.

Roger Garrett I began roasting coffee beans this year, and I have not regretted that decision ever. When I discovered Coffee Bean Corral, I was very surprised at the quality of the beans in all categories. But I have to say - the Ethiopia Natural Sidamo Durato Bombe Grade 1 bean, roasted fast at a high heat (completed before cooling in 4.5 minutes) is the best, most fruity and aromatic coffee I have ever drunk. This stuff is light roasted naturally processed coffee on steroids. Even the beans, green, emit a fruity aroma. Each day after roasting I open the cannister to check the development, and the bean smell is just powerful and stimulating. Three full days of cannister storage matured the roasted bean and it was ready to grind and drink. Wow! Fantastic! I have since purchased another 5 lb. bag to add to the first 5 lb bag to get me through the winter (I'm sure it will not). Highly recommended. Even my kids and my brothers are buying this bean now!

I have roasted to small batches of this coffee and have found it to be exceptional. I had one individual say it was the best cup of coffee he'd ever had!

Roasted in my Hottop this morning and I tried a cup right away. Blueberry came out as soon as the grinder started. The coffee was great and my next cup will probably be in a couple of days. I was surprised at how long this coffee took from the beginning of first crack until first crack finished. I can see that there is a variety of roast levels in this batch of beans.

Bombe is the bomb! I love ethiopias but this one blows al the others away. The fruity fresh clean flavor is beyond my verbal capacity but I just know that it perfect for me. I sampled the first order and immediately reordered fearing it might go out of stock quickly. I will probably during this one daily.

This Ethiopia is so amazing! It is very flavorful and bold. Not sour or bitter and you can really taste the fruity flavor. Very smooth.

Roasted to City+ on Gene Cafe roaster. Sweet, smooth, fruity. It's been a while since I last had the kind of stuff that makes me stop in my tracks. Good body and a bit of sweet after taste. I'm hoping there will be more when this is gone. Haven't tried it yet, but I think it would make an amazing espresso.

This is the first Ethiopian coffee I've found in almost a year that actually has blueberry and fruity notes that I love so much! Delicious coffee.

I’m a first time roaster and ordered a half pound sample (along with a few other samples). And I roasted in my popcorn air popper. I mention this because not all beans seem suited for that method (or it could be user error). This bean is VERY forgiving. Had no trouble roasting multiple batches. And it tastes amazing.

Purchased for a friend at work who has Sidamo on top of his list of favorites. He loved it and when I tried it I could see why! I roasted it medium since that was his preference but also tried it a little darker & preferred it

In my household, this coffee is King. I roast to medium. It is utterly fantastic. Disclosure: dry/natural process coffees are my favorite, but this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. I like it better than even the Misty Valley Yirgacheffe, and that is saying a lot. I waited… and waited… for this one to come back in stock, and once it did, I pounced on a 3 lb. bag. I’m thinking maybe I should have doubled that. This one may go fast. The flavor notes in the description are pretty spot-on!

Sweet and very fruity. Love it! Roasted just to second crack. Brewed after 3 days via French press.

This coffee is exceptional. A sweet, intense fruited natural. Dried apples, berries, spices and I don't know what else. Adequate acidity throughout. I have never had a more fruited espresso. I would not go past City+ if possible so as not to compromise the fruit but anything short of FC will probably work. Thanks to CBC for making a coffee like this available to its customers. Try it next to a more traditional espresso to better appreciate the range of outstanding coffee these folks have available.
