This washing station has been around for a long time and we’ve enjoyed our first great cups of Ethiopian naturals in the past from this station. We feel this coffee has every quality you seek in a classic Ethiopian natural. Over 1000 members are part of the Yirgacheffe Farmers Cooperative and the washing station works with farmers from the neighbouring villages of Aricha, Direto, Ela Tenecha, Gersse, Bowicha, H Badmie, Charbanita and Idido itself. Coffee is carefully dried in thin layers of raised beds. To avoid over fermentation and mold the coffee is turned every 3 hours the first few days. Drying is done 5-6 weeks later.
“Intense aroma of blueberries, strawberries and florals. Very sweet with a full body and long finish.”
