Aricha washing station is located around 8 kilometres from the centre of Yirgacheffe, in the kebele of Edido. Coffee in this micro-region of Yirgacheffe is grown in fertile red-brown clay soil by various smaller holder farmers who's plots are often less than 1/2 hectare of land. They deliver their coffee cherry to the washing station to be paid by weight at a market rate, the small-holder lots are then sorted and processed into bags, meaning traceability ends at the washing station.
Coffee from Ethiopia is a special treat and Aricha washing station never disappoints, this year's harvest is spectacular, enjoy!
