The Details

As Ethiopia has started to develop a more traceable exporting process their previously blanket regional labels have become a unique exploration into sub-regions and cleaner, more transparent flavours. In particular, the Guji zone has captivated us with regular purchases from the almost-neighbouring Sasaba, Hambella and Uraga washing stations highlighting how interesting and diverse the area can be.

This particular coffee is the collective work of 300 individual farmers, all located in the Uraga woreda (a sub-region of Southern Ethiopia’s Guji zone). With each growing coffee amongst maize and fruit trees the average farm size is approximately 3 hectares. Creating only a small harvest output their trading power and income is improved by delivering cherries for processing at the local Tabe Burka washing station. Farmers are paid in advance to ensure a more consistent picking schedule with the washing station then taking care of de-pulping, a 24-36 hour washed fermentation and at least 2 weeks of drying.
The owner of the Tabe Burka washing station, Tadesse Edema, is in friendly competition with his 28 brothers all working in coffee - a clear sign that sustainable specialty coffee is a collective effort! With that in mind we recommend brewing and sharing this with the help of your trusted V60 or as an overnight cold-brew.
