Earlier this summer we offered the Gora Kone washed which was highly regarded by many of our coffee friends for its juicy sweetness. We are now excited to present the natural-processed version of the same coffee.
Situated in the Arsi region near the village of Werka next to the Nensebo river, the Gora Kone washing station provides an income for 700-800 smallholders. Founded in 2010, the washing station has developed positive relations and increased coffee quality over the years via a few key supports to local producers: managerial training at the washing station level, advance pre-finance payments, and premiums for red cherries upon delivery. Coffees are grown at exceedingly high altitudes ranging from 1900-2050 masl. The cherries are washed fresh from the Gerenbicho river, an affluent of the Nensebo river, and dried on raised beds for 15 to 18 days. The result is a wonderfully complex and juicy coffee full of strawberries, black currant, and cantaloupe.
