Kolla Bolcha comes from the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia, bringing with it a ripe red fruit character (think cherry and currant), a heavy cola sweetness, and a lustrous, honeyed mouthfeel. Kolla Bolcha, a newer coop neighboring the Biftu Gudina cooperative, into the Agaro family just two years ago. Agaro’s is now equipped with brand-new processing equipment, allowing their coffee to showcase its unique character and improve the lives of those growing it in the process. Kolla Bolcha represents that investment to the fullest, bringing the heat season after season and month after month. Thanks to Technoserve’s initial investment and the stellar leadership of Kolla Bolcha and Kata Muduga, Kolla Bolcha’s processing is immaculate, leading to an incredible showcase of the coffee’s natural potential for a ridiculously long time off harvest. The secret? After Penagos processing equipment mechanically removes most of the fruit and mucilage from the seeds, they soak overnight in fiberglass tanks, allowing any remaining sugars to be fully removed from their surface so that the coffees are perfectly clean by the time they hit the drying beds for the eight-plus days they’ll need to dry. Remarkably, Kolla Bolcha not only starts the season stellar, it actually continues to open up and give even more over time, sometimes peaking in perfection at ten to twelve months off harvest and lasting long after that.
