Ethiopia - Uraga Natural
Roast Profile:- Light
Uraga washing 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.
Smallholder Farmers selectively handpick ripe cherries and deliver them to Uraga. Cherry is hand sorted at intake and put under a 120hr Anaerobic fermentation before being sundried to the right moisture level.
Farming methods in the region remain largely traditional. Guji farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families.
In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farms are also organic-by-default. Farmers in Guji typically use very few — if any — fertilizers or pesticides. Most farm work is done manually by the immediate family.
To capitalize on the magnificent climate, Uraga washing station provides training to help farmers produce better quality cherry. Training focuses on procedures for harvesting and transporting cherry.
