This coffee was produced in the Yirgacheffe Kochere region in Southern Ethiopia. It was processed at the Alemu Baketo washing station. This washing station works together with 650 local coffee farmers. Th farm is located on a small plots of land (2 hectares size in average) at the elevation 1,900 to 2,100 masl. In Yirgacheffe Kochere, as in all of Ethiopia, the main harvest period for coffee is November to January. At least four quality checks are made to ensure only the ripest cherry are picked. These cherries are delivered to the washing station, where they are carefully processed using the washed method, and dried for 12 to 15 days on African drying beds – first under cover and then in the sun. During this time, the coffee is hand-sorted and turned regularly to ensure consistent drying results.
