This coffee comes from the Tome mill in the area of Uraga in Guji Zone. Tadesse, the owner of the mill has been a pioneer amongst the coffee producers of Uraga, building roads and washing stations for over twelve years. The Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX) is a government organisation that has been in charge of coffee exportation with the aim of protecting the Ethiopian coffee “brand”. The goal was that farmers of all capabilities received a decent payment for their produce. During the ten years of ECX restriction, Tadesse had little choice but to deliver his lots to the regional warehouse where traceability was obscured. This year, with new regulations allowing transparency through the supply chain, Tadesse is finally able to deliver his world class coffees directly to international buyers.
This lot is washed and sun dried on raised drying beds. The cherries are picked when ripe, pulped immediately and then placed into moving water channels, which force the unhealthy beans to float and be removed. If any broken or discoloured beans get through, they are removed by hand. These quality processes lead to a vibrant, floral and clean cup with high intensity.
