The Story

The Uraga Raro washing station processes the coffee of local smallholders growing at close to 2,000 metres. With more than 400 farmers harvesting very small areas, the washing station provides the infrastructure to select, separate and control all post-harvest processing. The greater collective input increases the production volume and quality, also leading to better prices for the community.

With the recent liberalisation of the Ethiopian coffee market, the Guji zone and sub-region of Uraga has emerged as one of the most consistently interesting and expressive areas of production. The local heirloom varieties, Dega and Wolisho, are descendant from the surrounding forests and the washed processing here is precisely controlled for intensity and clarity of flavour. The impressive altitude contributes to a slow and even drying process, a key factor in the Guji reputation for consistency and longevity.

Our ambition is to continue sourcing, roasting and crafting the finest coffees from the heart of East London.

    We aim to ship our coffee as fresh as possible, however you may receive coffee roasted up to 7 days prior to the shipping date.

  • What grind type should I choose?

    We offer multiple grind options from Cafetiere to Espresso and everything between. Our domestic espresso grind is slightly coarser and is perfect for home espresso machines, such as DeLonghi or Sage whereas the commercial espresso grind is better suited to commercial machines like La Marzocco or Sanremo. If you’re not sure what grind to choose please get in touch with our team at admin@climpsonandsons to see how they can help.

  • Can I order 1kg of coffee?

    This is not something we currently offer but why not consider helping us reduce packaging by ordering a 2kg bag instead? Wholebean coffee has a longer shelf life than you might think, up to 3 months!
