Ethiopia Guji Uraga Washed is sourced from 600 family-owned farms organized around Feku Jiberil, at his coffee washing station located in the town of Tomme within the Guji Zone of the Oromia Region, Ethiopia. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the Feku’s washing station where the cherries are fully washed after pulping and fermenting for 36 - 48 hours, followed by an overnight soak, then dried on raised beds. The raised drying beds are meticulously constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage to the cherries during the drying process. They are then stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced, then transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
