In another first, Bukeela ka Ethiopia is the first Lungo in the Nespresso Pure Origin range. It is appropriate that Nespresso looked to Ethiopia for its Pure Origin Grand Cru because it has a global reputation for exquisite and floral coffees. Nespresso coffee experts targeted the coffee terroirs of the fertile highlands of the African nation of Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee, to create its first Pure Origin Lungo Grand Cru. They drew on two, diverse coffee regions within the country for the hand-picked Arabicas that make up the pure Arabica blend of Bukeela ka Ethiopia. They are working with coffee farmers in the southern region of Sidama which is known for its fine and elegant washed Arabicas. And they are sourcing the heavier, naturally processed green coffee of the elevated plateaus of Western Ethiopia which contribute wild and musky notes to the Grand Cru. The name Bukeela is drawn from the word for bean in Amharic which is the main language of economy and business in Ethiopia while the second part of this sensuous, singsong name “ka Ethiopia” comes from the local language and means “from Ethiopia”.
