We are excited to launch another coffee from the Gedeb area close to the famous Yirgacheffe town - Worka Sakaro. This is a family-owned washing station built by Daniel Mijane and his father. Together they are investing in the sustainability of the surrounding community, helping to build roads, schools and other vital infrastructure. They own few more washing stations close by neighborhoods, located at higher altitudes. Worka Sakaro is receiving coffee from approximately 400 smallholder farmers at an altitude between 2000-2200 masl.
Farmers grow their coffee on the slopes of Mt. Rudu, in the highlands of Ethiopia.
Worka Sakaro’s unique profile is strictly connected to the processing method used at the washing station. Daniel installed an electric stirrer into the fermentation tank that equalizes the temperature during the process, helping to create a uniform and consistent fermentation. After this, the coffee is fully washed and dried on raised beds for 16 days.
Expect bright citrus tones of Meyer lemon and pink grapefruit in the cup and intense floral fragrance.
