Wuri is a washing station in the Worka Kebele within Gedeb District, not far from Yirga Cheffe. In fact, because of the close proximity and general similarities in cup flavor profiles, coffee from this region is often traded as "Yirga Cheffe". The wet mill buys coffee from more than 1500 growers in the surrounding region, most with 1 - 2 hectares of coffee planted near their homes. The landscape in Worka is dramatic, with highland regions starting at just over 2000 meters above sea level and topping out at 2300 meters. High altitude has a positive effect on coffee density and also can affect the size of the beans. This is a fully washed coffee, with fermentation times between 36 and 48 hours, and around 2 weeks to dry the coffee. 

Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted-to-order

The Coffee Review:

Richly aromatic, deeply and sweetly herb-toned. Cocoa nib, bergamot, lilac, maple syrup, myrrh in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet-toned in structure with vibrant, juicy acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The long, resonant finish is flavor-saturated, floral- and fruit-toned.
