Nekisse – formerly Beloya – was the first coffee Ninety Plus developed in Ethiopia, and in 2007, it was the first coffee to score 97 points on Coffee Review.
Ninety Plus Founder, Joseph Brodsky, moved to Ethiopia in 2006 to start Ninety Plus. He lived full-time in Ethiopia for 2 years, fermenting and drying coffees with his own hands and intuition. These tiny batches (the Aricha and Beloya Micro Selections) were first taken on a tour to specialty roasters in the Nordic countries who hadn’t tasted natural processed coffees of this level prior. They quickly became the choice of national barista champions who featured them on the World Barista Competition stage in Copenhagen in 2008. These coffees were the first single-origin, natural process coffees to be presented in the World Barista Championships and were the precursors of the current Panama Nekisse.

Each country’s port-of-entry Customs Authorities have importing regulations outside our knowledge and control. Please be aware that there might be import fees, taxes, and/or additional documentation required to import the goods according to each country’s regulations. You, the consumer, are responsible for those charges entirely.
We are shipping our goods using essential exporting documents, such as FDA-Prior Notice, Phytosanitary Certificate, ICO Certificate of Origin, and Certificate of Origin. You, the consumer, must communicate any additional documentation before the order ships from our premises. Failing to do so, no cancellation, refund, or return will be granted to the importer.
Please be aware if you fail to clear the order from your customs authorities, it is likely to be destroyed by them.
By design, the Ikawa roaster is a fluid bed roaster, which means simply that it is roasting using hot air. This, though, has its limitations, as it depends on the altitude, relative humidity, temperature, and density of the air. The profiles we are sharing below with you have been developed in an environment with 85% relative humidity, at 1,400 meters above sea level, with temperatures between 20°C and 25°C.
