Shantawene has won 7th place (from more than 1,400 entries) in the 2020 Cup of Excellence in Ethiopia!

In 2006, brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo founded Daye Bensa, a coffee grower and exporter in Ethiopia. Daye Bensa exports coffee from its farm, in the Shantawene Village, as well as from "out-growers" (or smallholders) in three villages: Shantawene, Karamo and Bombe. It gets its name from the Shantawene Village where it is grown amidst the misty valleys of Ethiopia’s Sidamo growing region.

This is a prime example of naturally processed Ethiopian coffee. In natural processing, the coffee is picked ripe and then left in the cherry during the drying process, translating into incredible fruit flavor in the cup.

Cupping notes: Raspberry jam, plum, tropical, spice. Clean and complex, juicy acidity with a clean finish.

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

Wow this is a really good, unique coffee! I'm surprised there aren't more reviews. This is great roasted medium. If you're looking for a really good coffee with fruit notes, I highly recommend this. One of my favorites!

The raspberry smell and flavor makes this one quirky in a good way. We prefer a medium roast and these beans turn into a smooth cup that tastes good any way it's brewed. The raspberry flavor becomes more pronounced as it cools in the cup and is still very detectable as a latte with milk and a splash of vanilla syrup.

Fruit. So much fruit. You'd swear it was flavored if you didn't know any better! Of the Ethiopian coffee's my wife and I have tried, this is by far our favorite. If you don't care for fruit notes in your coffee, I'd say you're better off looking elsewhere.

Favorite coffee roasted medium to dark. Fruity, yet creamy.

These beans are now one of my favs. It literally does taste and smell like Raspberry jam !! I just wish I knew how good it was when it was on sale because I would have bought a 5lb bag instead of 1lb.

Juicy, lively acidity and full of fruit. One of my favorite Ethiopian naturals and a mandatory purchase yearly.

Roasted in a "Westbend Poppery One" an absolute fruit bomb, Cherry's, Berry's, and I think some Dried apricot, Roasted just to the end of 1st crack... Will be buying more of this. I would like to add that the bag had split open enough to spill out maybe a third of my beans during shipping (No fault of CBC) I contacted them and reported the problem. They replaced my order in full at no cost...Absolutely top-notch...Now that's what I call customer service..Thank you CBC.

Winey, almost Black Cherry and Berry Flavors. I roasted for Espresso, and it maintained body and the fruit notes!
