Hailing from the celebrated Guji region, the Muda Tatesa is a perfect example of what makes this coffee region so renowned. Amazing quality coffee, quality control and consistency from its producers and growers.
Located South of Sidamo and East of Yirgacheffe, the Guji region is relatively new to coffee. Small-scale farmers cultivate coffee trees in their garden, in a mineral rich volcanic soil.
Established in 2017, the Welichu Wachu washing station serves 4,500 local coffee farmers from around Haro Wachu, in the Urga district. Coffee producers own on average half an hectare of land on which they cultivate coffee. The plants are mostly fertilised with organic matter and intercropped with various other food crops. This type of farming accounts for roughly 50% of the coffee grown in the region. Farmers deliver their ripe cherries to the washing station.
The Natural coffees undergo laborious hand sorting to remove green or under ripe cherries before being spread on the drying tables 4-5 cm deep. The drying cherries are raked and ridged hourly and covered during the midday heat. After drying for 10 – 12 days, a handful of dried cherries should produce a rattling sound when shaken. The final test is that the weight of a sample of coffee is the same for two consecutive days.
This is a true specialty coffee, a microlot & one to not be missed!
