Worka Wuri washing station is located near Gedeb town, Gedeo zone, in the SNNP region of Southern Ethiopia.
Over a number of years the region has developed a distinguished reputation for fine coffees, producing some of the most sought-after microlots in world. The combination of high altitude, fertile soil, consistent and plentiful rains, and an abundance of local knowledge are all contributing factors to the high status of Yirgacheffe coffees.
The local indigenous ‘heir-loom’ varietals - which grow wild in Ethiopia - are responsible for the unique flavour notes which make for an unusual but refined cup.
This is our first ever washed Ethiopian and we could not be happier with it. It is beautifully complex and delicate! As usual, if you can, we recommend resting the coffee for 2 weeks to begin experiencing it in its fullness. But we understand if you just can't wait...
