Reko washing station is named after Reko-Mountain, a tall and skinny mountain that towers above the hills of Kochere. Reko, translated in Afaan Oromo, means “challenge”. It refers to the challenge of climbing Reko-mountain. This name was adopted for its symbolic value. It is Reko’s challenge to cultivate the best Yirgacheffe coffee through their three core values of success; education of producers, good cherry selection and control of processing.
850 producers deliver their red cherry to the Reko washing station where it's pulped, fermented for 36-48 hours and dried on raised drying beds for 10-12 days. Such tried and true processes result in a cup of impeccable clarity, defined by its jasmine-like florals, citrus acidity, and herbal complexity.
