Uraga, Guji is among our favorite coffee growing regions in Ethiopia. The region has fertile, sandy loam soil and is able to grow coffee at extremely high elevations. The coffees contributing to this lot were grown at 2,300 meters above sea level, where weather permits very slow cherry maturation. This results in vibrant acidity and very clean cups. In 2022, our export partner purchased this washing station in Gogogu and spent time there during harvest and post-harvest to set standards for processing from beginning to end and their efforts are obvious on the cupping table. Of our trip to Ethiopia in early 2023, the washed and natural from Gogogu were our highest scoring coffees from not only this exporter, but every supplier we visited. The processing details are traditional for Ethiopia, but when done right, and with coffee grown at such high elevation, the results can be really special.

Coffee is first floated to separate out unripe cherries, and then immediately pulped to remove skin of the fruit. Once pulped, coffee is put in fermentation tanks with spring water for roughly 60 hours during which the water is changed 3 times. After fermentation, coffee is washed through channels where “floaters” are separated again. After being washed clean, the coffee is soaked for 8-16 hours, our export/milling partner tells us that this step improves cup quality. Now the coffee is taken to drying beds where it will be moved regularly until it reaches ideal moisture content, roughly two weeks.
