After some great examples of washed Guji coffees last year, we are lucky to get our hands on a beautiful washed Yirgacheffe this time around. Hailing from the south of this area, Worka is located at a high altitude a few kilometres from Gedeb town.
The co-operative of Worka serves about 411 smallholder producers, most of whom cultivate the slopes of the mountain they call Rudu. There are many fruit trees in this area to give shade to the coffee plants as they grow. Many of these farmers create their own organic fertiliser to the benefit of not only the coffee but the whole ecosystem in the area.
The cherries are pulped on the same day they are picked. They normally dry for 7 days but this is dependent on weather conditions.
The combo of florals and sweet berries really impressed us on tasting - this is a real showcase for what a washed Yirgacheffe can do!
