An exemplary lot from the Guji zone in Ethiopia.
Sweet, clean & complex.

"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. This lot was one of the best Gujis this season (if not THEE best) ... Guji is not far from Yirga Cheffe, 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. The coffee is hand sorted all along the way from whole cherry, to wet parchment on the drying beds, to the final dried seeds, which is a boon to cup cleanliness and uniformity"
