Raro Coffee Processing Station is a washing station located in Guji which buys cherries from around 1500 neighbouring farmers. Uraga Raro is owned by SNAP COFFEE exporters. The farms that supply cherries to this washing station have high yields as the soil is quite fertile and farming methods are to a very high standard.
The processing of this lot is very different from the usual natural processing. The coffee cherries are sorted and floated in water to remove the floaters. The denser cherries are wrapped in black plastic for 72 hours. During this period the black plastic is opened once a day and the cherries are raked for even exposure to air. After this period of fermentation, the cherries are taken to raised drying beds for drying.
There are 430 farmers that deliver cherry to the Urago Raro washing station. The site has sun exposure the whole day and is located on a small hill that gets hit by cold winds.
This is a spectacular Ethiopian coffee with superb vibrancy, a great result of extended fermentation during the processing. Classic fruity notes of berries, raspberry & blueberries from the natural processing, pair with delightful grape candy sweetness finish. A coffee you'll love on the first sip!
