Recent changes in the Ethiopian export rules have opened new opportunities to develop relationships with vertically integrated suppliers. Mijane Woresa, who has worked in coffee for more than 30 years, recently seized on the opportunity and establish an export company along with his sons, which allows them to directly offer lots from their two washing stations, Halo Hartume and Worka Sakaro, located within the Gedeb district.
The Ethiopia Gedeb Washed Worka Sakaro is sourced from 410 farmers who cultivate coffee on small plots and deliver their cherries to the Worka Haro washing station. On arrival, cherries are carefully hand-sorted and floated to separate out less dense beans, then coffee cherries are placed on raised beds where it is hand sorted again and dried over a period of 14 to 21 days. The cherries are also covered during the afternoons to prevent harsh drying in the intense sun.
As a family owned business, Mijane and his sons emphasize the social impact in the communities where they source coffee. They have invested in more localized cherry collection sites to reduce the transportation cost for small producers. They have also contributed to road construction projects that make travel for everyone a bit easier. They are also responding to the local needs for investing in school infrastructure projects and making sure the children have the equipment to play sports.
This natural coffee is packed full of fruitiness. You'll get mandarin orange aromatics on the nose, sapodilla & sweet potato stick sweetness on the finish. A lovely coffee for the after lunch to keep the day going!
