This coffee was produced by the Uraga washing station in Guji, Ethiopia, a region renowned for exceptional coffee. The Uraga washing station receives coffee cherries from farmers in the surrounding region. The station is located in Guji, a coffee-growing region that was once part of Yirgacheffe but whose microclimate produces such unique coffee, that it was allocated as its own coffee-growing region.
Farmers selectively handpick ripe cherries and deliver them to the station. At intake, employees visually inspect the cherries and accept only fully ripe cherries for anaerobic fermentation. Selected cherries are tightly packed in GrainPro bags and sealed shut. The cherries then ferment anaerobically (without oxygen) for 18 to 24 hours.
After fermentation, the cherries are carefully removed from bags and laid to dry in direct sunlight on raised beds. The workers turn the cherries frequently to promote even drying. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks for the cherries to dry.
