Bensa Segera Process Collection
Enjoy all three of our latest releases from Bensa Segera at one time. This process collection features 3 12oz bags each highlighting a different processing method.
If you’ve been following us for a while, or at least since last year, you probably remember the Bensa Kokosa - a process collection from Red Fox that really challenged what we thought we knew about Ethiopian coffee. This year we purchased three coffees from a neighboring washing station, Bensa Segera, that have again left us speechless. The three processes include a washed, a natural, and a Kenyan process - each of which take an element of what you expect and then go a step further.

The Bensa Segera Kenyan process, to be frank, is an incredible coffee. From the moment the coffee is ground, it is clear that what you are about to make is different. It has the intensity of a Kenyan coffee, the delicate complexity of a gesha, and the crisp clarity of an Ethiopian coffee. When the coffee is hot, the flavors are loud - most of our notes included reduced fruits or jams. As it cools, those big flavors mellow into sweeter mandarin with a clean black tea finish.
The Bensa Segera Sundried process takes all of the best parts of the washed and Kenyan cups and turns up the contrast - rounding the edges and pulling the focus toward the brightest colors without oversaturating them.
The Bensa Segera Washed process provides us with the formula that will be repeated in the other two processes. It begins bright and sweet with a burst of passion fruit carried by a silky smooth body to finish gently like the first sip of a chamomile tea.
