Ethiopia - Natural Yirgacheffe

$ 16.00

Our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural Aramo is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Aramo coffee mill located in the Yirgacheffe district of the Gedeo Zone within the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Regional State, Ethiopia. The Gedeo region is named after the Gedeo people who are indigenous to this area. The Aramo mill is owned and operated by Alemayehu Birhanu and his family. The Aramo mill receives ripe cherries from 650 small coffee farmers. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the Aricha coffee mill station where the cherries are sorted and then placed on raised drying beds in thin layers. The cherries are turned every 2 to 3 hours in the first few days to avoid over-fermentation and mold growth. Depending on weather, 4 to 6 weeks later the beans are de-hulled and transported in parchment to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
