This coffee is named after the process station and nearby village, or Kebele, where the coffee is harvested and processed - Buku. The growers from the surrounding community bring their cherries to this washing station in the region of Hambela for processing. The coffee is grown at an elevation between 1 900 and 2 250 meters. The process is natural, where the cherries are sun-dried on raised beds, allowing the fruit of the coffee cherry to dry on the seed, developing a sweet complexity. This is also an organic coffee, and METAD - a family run business that owns the farm where the process station is located - has certified the surrounding farms themselves.
