About the farm
Around 14 hours traveling with a car from Addis Abeba you will find the highland community of Aricha close to Yirgacheffe town. The area is known for "Konjo Buna" which means "good coffee" in Ethiopian! Here you have ideal conditions to grow outstanding coffees and the people do an excellent job. The coffees are carefully sorted and processed carefully. In the highlands the coffee has more time to grow and therefore more time to develop different characters. Generally speaking the coffee to be found here is amazingly fruity and has floral flavors with an outstanding scoring!
When producing naturals the level of fermentation will be determined by the thickness and layer during the first days of drying in combination with temperature. Fermentation is slower at higher altitudes as temperatures are generally lower. The cherries are dried in a relatively thin layer at about 3-4 cm the first days. They will build up the layers to 6-10 cm after a few days. The coffees are moved frequently and they will be covered during the hottest hours of the day to protect the cherries from intense sunlight, then again at night to protect against humidity. This will also help improve quality as the coffee is rested and the drying more homogeneous. Drying take 15 - 18 days.
