      About This Coffee

       

      Uraga washing station deliver cherry from farmers in the surrounding region. Farmers are fortuitously 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. 

       

      Cultivation

       

      Farming methods in the region remain largely traditional. Yirgacheffe 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 Yirgacheffe 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.

       

      Harvest & Post-Harvest

       

      Farmers selectively handpick ripe cherry and deliver it to Uraga. Cherry is hand sorted at intake, pulped and fermented for 48 hours. After fermentations, parchment is washed and then soaked in clear water before being brought to the raised drying beds where it will sundry for approximately 18 days.
