  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    Scribbled on the corner of my notebook, following an extensive cupping session with an Addis Ababa exporter with whom we identified some of our favorite coffees; was “Sakaro” - one of a cluster of mills fortunately situated on the periphery of the Worka kebele in Gedeb.

    We’re not sure if it’s thanks to the fact that coffee can be found growing as high as 2,400 meters above sea level, or the slightly greater-than-average parcel size of the Gedeb farmer (leading to a higher-level of investment and ownership in his produce), or both - but we find coffees from this region to be characterized by the most dynamic bouquets of florals and warming spices of them all.

    Upon receiving ripe coffee cherry deliveries from local small-holder farmers, the Sakaro washing station carries out pulping, channel-washing and raised-bed drying for 12 - 20 days.
