Procaffeinating (n.) the tendency to not start anything until you’ve had a cup of coffee
With selectively hand-picked coffee and superior quality control process, this washed coffee holds notes of pink fruits as red cherry as well as red wine
This lot comes from Amederaro Konga washing station in Yirgacheffe coffee region, Gediyo zone at 6 km from Yrgacheffe town. The washing station sits at 1,999 masl and surrounded by the Toracho river. Farmers in this region typically cultivate Jarc varieties on small plots of land around their house.
This coffee is a family crop – grown by households within small gardens, on less than one hectare of land. Producers line their homes with coffee trees, and it is the primary source of income. It is common for producers to intercrop enset, the Ethiopian banana, avocados, and papaya to have additional food sources.
The washing station is paying more than the market price for a kilogram of red cherry, and those farmers that bring quality red cherry are paid a cash incentive, ensuring higher-than-average overall quality. Coffee is selectively hand-picked before being delivered to the mill collection points, usually within 5km of the producers’ homes. Great care is taken upon delivery to separate out any overripe, underripe or damaged beans before consolidating with other lots for the road to the wet mill.
