Shantawene is a village situated in the Bensa District on the edge of the Harenna Forest on the western slope of Mount Batu. This coffee has a quintessential profile of Ethiopia. Big florals, lots of stone fruit with sparkling acidity. The exporter, Daye Bensa, works closely with communities to encourage women farmers and supports students at Hawassa University to perform research to improve coffee quality. 

In 2006, brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo founded Daye Bensa, a coffee grower and exporter in Ethiopia, Daye Bensa exports coffee from its farm, in the Shantawene Village, as well as from “out-growers” (or smallholders) in three villages: Shantawene, Karamo and Bombe.
