This exceptional Natural Process coffee was dry milled and exported by Cup A Lot. The coffee was grown by smallholder farmers living around the kebele of Gomoro in the Oromia & Uraga Region.
Most contributing farmers own less than a hectare of land, and they grow coffee simply as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other subsistence crops, such as sweet potato, mangos and avocados, but there are no other primary cash crops grown in the region.
Coffee is selectively hand-picked before being delivered to the mill collection points, usually within 5 km of the producer’s homes. At least once a day, the collected coffee cherry is delivered to the mill, where it is floated and then placed on raised beds, to be dried as well as sorted by hand. Great care is taken upon delivery to separate out any overripe, under ripe or damaged bean. Once sorted, the cherry will remain on the beds for around 15 to 20 days; until the cherry has reached the ideal moisture content. Next, the dried cherry will be milled in this case at Guji Uraga, before being transported to the dry mill and warehouse in Addis Ababa city. Here coffee is often milled again to remove foreign material, remaining parchment, and defected beans; ready for export.
This coffee grows up to 2300 metres above sea level & you can expect a sweet cup with notes of Strawberries, nectarine & honeycomb.
