Ethiopia Wolichu Wachu
The Wolichu Wachu station is a newly erected coffee processing site near Haro Wachu town in Uraga, Guji Zone. The wet mill was built just over a year ago and serves nearly 5000 small farmers in this high altitude area, where coffee is grown up to 2300 meters above sea level. Guji is not far from Yirgacheffe, and both are known for producing extremely clean cup profiles that are overtly floral. This lot is a fully washed coffee, which in the case of this particular station means the cherry is depulped and fermented for 2-3 days, then soaked for an additional 8+ hours in clean water before washing away the remaining fruit, and then drying on raised African drying beds.
