This sweet, juicy coffee comes from Tabe Burka mill, where coffee cherries are washed in water from the Burka river. Aromas and flavors are enticingly rich, with big notes of strawberry and peach preserves and a hint of guava as it cools.
The coffee is grown by 300 smallholders farms, organized into 5 farmer groups and is processed by Mr Tadesse Edema at the Tabe Burka washing station. Tabe Burka is located in the Uraga woreda (district), in the Guji region of Ethiopia. Each farmer of the farmer group owns approximately 3 hectares of land and cultivates maize trees, false banana, and fruit trees – besides their coffee crop. Mr Edema pays the farmer groups in advance when harvest begins. This gives the smallholders enough incentive to harvest quality. Coffee is washed with clean river water and fermented for 24-36 hours.
