Oromia, West Arsi / 2085 masl. / Selected varieties 74110, 74112 / Washed / SCA - 85.00p


This coffee was produced by smallholder producers living in smaller towns in Ethiopia’s West Arsi zone. Ripe cherries were delivered by 742 producers to the Refisa washing station, which is operated by Negusse Debela.

Local farmers grow locally selected varieties 74110 and 74112, which were developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center in the 1970s. Cherries are manually harvested and delivered for washing. Washed processing begins with pulping the cherries and placing them into fermentation tanks where they are fermented in water for 48–60 hours. The fermented coffee is then washed, and the parchment coffee is dried on the station’s 200 raised beds for 7–10 days until reaching its ideal humidity.

Roast info

This coffee is roasted for filter - meaning, a light roast. We roast our seasonal coffees in this manner because we wish for the coffee to shine as it is - for it to display the characteristics that have produced its excellent quality. This kind of roast allows the natural flavours, acids and sugars of the coffee to be in the front, and lets you learn about its origin through taste. As the name says, it's best used in filter coffee methods, such as drip or immersion, so while making an espresso from these is possible, it could prove tricky.

Use and storage

We recommend you enjoy this coffee within 3 months of the roasting date.
Store in a dry and cool place, between +16 and +25 degrees.
