Werka Organic Ethiopia Espresso
This lot is made up of coffees grown near the local village of Werka, located in Ethiopia’s West Arsi Zone. The coffee was processed using the natural method at Gara Kone washing station, one of twenty owned and managed by Testi Coffee, a family-owned company founded by Mr Faysel A. Yonis. Sitting at an impressive 2,020 meters above sea level, Gara Kone produces exceptional natural coffees. The washing station currently employs around 200 workers, who process some 1.5 million kilo of coffee cherry each year. During harvest, this freshly picked coffee is delivered daily by some 1,000 independent outgrowers. The average elevation of the farms in this region is very high, around 1,950–2,150m above sea level. This, combined with the region’s cool temperatures, is ideal for the slow ripening of coffee cherries, leading to denser beans and a sweeter, more complex cup.
