This is a grade 1 Ethiopia washed coffee from Wolichu Wachu in the Uraga District, Oromia. The Wolichu washing station works alongside 4500 smallholders in the area, who farm small parcels of prime coffee growing territory, each farm is on average half a hectare. Unusual for Ethiopia, around 90% of coffee delivered to Wolichu Wachu for processing is of the Bourbon variety. Established in 2017, the fairly new Wolichu facility was designed and built to limit the use of water pumps and to work with maximum efficiency. After the coffee is pulped and washed it is soaked in clean water tanks for between 36 and 72 hours. Next, the coffee is pushed through grading channels to clean and sort the coffee by density, before the top quality coffees undergo a further soaking period of between 8 -12 hours. Drying at Wolichu Wachu is done in the lower field at the washing station. In the cup, look for notes of melon, black tea, citrus, jasmine, star fruit, bergamot, and peach (all of which become more pronounced as it cools).
