The Uraga district offers some of the highest elevations in all of Ethiopia resulting in loaded fruit and sweetness. Like in most of Ethiopia, growers in this district are smallholder farmers who are also known as garden farmers. Coffee is grown right around their homes and during harvest, cherries are picked and brought to washing stations to be processed.

Zelalem Alemu is the owner of the washing station called Odola TebeArowacho which was built in 2016. When we first received this lot, we were pleasantly surprised to see this washed coffee packed with fruity sweetness that made our mouth water. On the cupping table, it proudly stood up against natural processed coffees while maintaining a very clean flavor profile.
