The coffee comes from small holder coffee farmers in the Goro Badessa Woreda of Hambela Wamena, a high altitude region that tops out at 2100 meters above sea level. These lots are made up of coffee from several hundred different farmers, most with only a couple hundred coffee trees or less. The people in this region are known as Guji Oromo, and coffee farming has been a core part of the culture in the highland areas for many years. It's a distinct coffee from Yirga Cheffe, and Sidamo. Geographically, culturally, and in terms of cup flavors, these southern coffees have a different flavor profile while maintaining the same general characteristics; citrus and floral accents, a lively cup character. Like most of the country, the farm is planted in regionally distinct local strains of coffees that have spread from the wild forest plants of western Ethiopia, to Harar in the East and to the southern districts like Guji. This particular lot was wet-processed, meaning that after the cherry is removed from the seed, the sticky mucilage layer that surrounds the bean is removed after fermenting for 24-36 hours in water (this varies from region to region), before then being removed and laid out to dry on raised drying tables. 

Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted-to-order. This can take 24 - 72 hours after order has been received and according to roasting schedule. You will be notified through email when order has shipped or ready for local pickup.
Coffee Review: 
An easygoing light-roasted natural-processed Ethiopia with especially lively acidity.”
