Worka Sakaro Natural
- Berries / Floral / Jammy
The Mijane family has run washing stations in the Gedeb region of the Gedeo zone for decades, and one of their goals is to export traceable coffee from each kebele (the smallest administrative division in Ethiopia) in Gedeb separately.
The Gedeb woreda is home to several coffee producing kebeles (communities) including Worka Sakaro. Like most of the area around Gedeb, the hills vary in altitude from 2000 to 2200 meters above sea level.
This is a natural or dry-processed coffee where cherries are laid out in thin layers and dried on raised beds for approx 15-21 days depending on weather. During this time the coffee cherries are constantly turned throughout the day to ensure even drying. During the initial drying all under-ripe cherry is sorted out.
The cup profile is what is expected of top quality, very clean natural processed coffees from Yirgacheffe. Jammy ripe red fruit notes like strawberry and raspberry, chocolatey undertones, with nice bright florality and lots of sweetness.
