This is a beautiful coffee that starts out with notes of blackberries and peaches with a slight mandarin orange citrus note and finishes with a milk chocolate & graham cracker after taste. It will invoke memories of sitting around a campfire making s'mores on a family fall camping trip.
Uraga Washing station is located in the Guji Zone with over 600 smallholder farmers contributing. These farmers grow their coffee on the mountain slopes of Guji at 1,650 to 2,000 meters above sea level. Guji is part of the Oromia region which shares a border with the Gedeo Zone. The coffee is grown in the shade of Birbira, Corsica Africana, and Ensete Ventricosum trees. The coffee is picked when the cherries are ripe and then red honey processed. When the coffee is dried it is then milled to remove the husks and stored in a local warehouse before being transported for final processing before shipment.
