Ethiopia Uraga Kelloo Raro

From: 10,75

Whilst Ethiopia is already a magical land for coffee growing, the region around the Uraga Raro washing station keeps surprising us. The farmers in this area have relatively high yield because of the incredible soil they grow their coffee on. Together with careful processing you get a coffee that is both traditionally Ethiopian tasting, yet also surprising in its qualities. We found delicate notes of violets and purple fruit, yet thick and sweet like red fruit, grape and apricot, all on a silky black tea base that yearns for another sip.

A note from our supplier, Nordic Approach:

Raro Coffee Processing Station is a washing station located in Guji which buys cherries from around 400 neighbouring farmers. Uraga Raro is owned by SNAP COFFEE exporters. The farms that supply cherries to this washing station have high yields as the soil is quite fertile and farming methods are to a very high standard. The site is located above 2470m.a.s.l., on. a small hill that gets hit by cold winds and has great sun exposure the whole day. We have only seen the coffees from here get better and better over the years we have been working with them.

The company that manages the washing station’s policy rests on three main pillars:

  1. Process specialty coffee consistently;
  2. Transfer the required know-how to the outgrowing farmers along with a great desire and training in processing and cleaning methods;
  3. Protect the environment through waste recycling systems.
