About the Farmer

This particular coffee is coming from smallholder farmers in the Uraga region in Guji. This region is not only famous for its excellent coffee but also for its gold mines, producing most of Ethiopia’s gold. The soils are very fertile with bright-red to dark volcanic-brown colors. Traditionally the Guji smallholder farmers live in harmony with nature. They grow coffee on plots with an average size of 2 hectares and rather low productivity.

After carefully picking the ripe, red cherries they are brought to the washing station. Here the cherries are carefully sorted before being processed. This ensures a homogenous and consistent quality. The cherry skin and the pulp are removed from the bean during the depulping process.  After this, the beans are left in fermentation tanks for 24 to 36 hours. Depending on the weather conditions the remaining pulp and mucilage are removed through the fermentation process. The coffee is then finally washed and graded through washing channels.

Now, the high humidity content of the beans is reduced to approx.12%. This happens under the African sun on so-called ‘African beds’ (drying tables) during 10 to15 days, where the coffee is carefully raked several times a day.
