Ethiopia – Uraga – Landrace – Natural


Farmer: Uraga washing station, Guji, Oromia

Uraga is a woreda in the Guji zone, where coffee is grown on very small farms (less than 1/2 hectare each on average) alongside corn, barley, beans, and wheat. Both Washed and Natural coffees are produced at the Uraga washing station.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers—many of whom own less than 1/2 hectare of land, and as little as 1/8 hectare on average—deliver cherry by weight to the local washing station. The coffee is sorted and processed into varying levels of quality. This lot is a grade 1 which is the highest level of quality Ethiopian coffee is sorted into.

Naturally processed Ethiopian coffees retain an intense sweetness and ripe fruit character. Each year we look for the best examples of high quality natural coffees from Ethiopia to offer as microlots as we love the distinct character and fruit flavours they exhibit.

Tasting Notes: Intensely rich with plum, blueberry and cocoa. A balanced fruit acidity with a sweet and lingering aftertaste.
