Gatta Farm is located in the centre of Shantawene village in Sidama Bensa, Ethiopia. It is situated at an altitude of 2120-2210 m in the middle of a natural forest. It is surrounded by indigenous trees said to be over 100 years old, waterfalls and rivers. The Gatta farm is named after the waterfall that crosses the farm and is a landmark of the region.
In the process, the cherries are harvested by hand, removing unripe and green cherries. Only the fully ripe cherries are then transferred to fermentation tanks. After a relatively short anaerobic fermentation, the cherries are moved to raised African beds where they are dried to the desired moisture content in the coffee beans.
The beans are characterised by complex black tea flavours, fruitiness and blueberry freshness.
