Gora Kone is a privately owned communal wetmill in Nensebo – West Arsi, collecting cherries from various smallholders.
This is coffee from one of the privately owned washing stations in Nensebo. Nensebo is one of the woredas in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. Hills and mountain ranges characterise 70% of this woreda; the rest consists of arid lands and plateaus. Most of the population is muslim. Only 4,6 % had access to natural drinking water. Coffee is an important cash crop with over 5,000 hectares planted.
The total production is about 10 containers a year, 3 washed and 3 naturals. They generally do lot separation based on 150 bags of parchment which equals to 100 bags of green coffee.
We purchased 6 bags of this coffee, it is truly spectacular, we hope you enjoy it!
