Bale Mountain farms lie on the Arsi-Bale Mountain belt which forms the south-eastern Ethiopian highlands that is above 3,000 metres above sea level (masl). This beautiful mountain range is a nature reserve home to birds and animals. The farms are surrounded by two big rivers and shaded by trees which contributes to better temperature control for the coffee cultivation. As such, the coffee produced are consistent and superior in taste.
The coffee farms are located on altitudes ranging from 1,800 to 2,200 masl. Varietals such as heirloom can be found in this region and they typically undergo wash-processing and natural-sundried-processing. The green beans are bluish in colour and a high cup-quality coffee from this region will have notes of lemon, strawberries, peach and chocolate as well as a rich body.
