Biloya is a kebele or town in the Woreda of Kochere in the Gedeo Zone. Even though Yirgacheffe is a separate Woreda, the commodities exchange in Ethiopia assigns coffee using larger geographic labels decided based on distinct flavor profiles, in this case Yirgacheffe.
The Gedeo zone is named for the indigienous Gedeo People. Recently there have been conflicts between the Gedeo and Oromo people in West Guji. The Oromo people, the majority in Ethiopia, are targeting the Gedeo primarily over ethnic land disputes. In the last year, over 1 million Gedeo People have been displaced from West Guji and Gedeo as a result of the conflicts, more than any other global conflict.
This coffee is naturally processed. This style of processing consists of picking only ripe cherries and laying them out to dry intact. The coffee must be turned consistently for it to dry evenly and to prevent mold growth. It shined on the cupping table at longer roasting times. Its high density translates to very high acidity in the cup, but lowering the heat application before first crack allows more time for sugars to caramelize and balance its inherent brightness. --Info courtesy of Royal Coffee New York
