Ethiopia is considered the cradle of coffee and famous for the fact that it was in the forest in the Kaffa region where Coffea Arabica grew wild. Nowadays, the country shows a typical “smallholder” structure.
This particular coffee is coming from smallholder farmers in the Uraga region in Guji. This region is not only famous for its excellent coffee but also for its gold mines producing most of Ethiopia’s gold. The soils are very fertile with bright-red to dark volcanic-brown colors. Traditionally the Guji smallholder farmers live in harmony with nature. They grow coffee on plots with an average size of 2 hectares and a rather low productivity.
At an altitude of 1750 - 2300m above sea level the coffee cherries are left to mature in the natural forests surrounding the farmers land where they are hand-picked and brought to the processing station. The cherries are sorted for size and ripeness on African drying beds where they are left to dry naturally by the sun. The cherries are turned several times a day to allow them to dry evenly. The drying process can take up to 4 weeks. Then the dried cherries are further processed at a dry mill.
