Getting product details...
In December 2013, during a blind cupping, our friends at Trabocca found this washed Yirgacheffe from Reko washing station. Reko is a small washing station in the Kochere region that was unknown to us at the time. The coffee stood out because of its pronounced aroma of peach, mango and other stone-fruits.
Reko washing station started production in 2001 and is located in Kochere, Yirgacheffe at an altitude of around 1850-2100 meters. During harvest, which normally takes place between late October and mid-January, about 850 farmers bring their red cherries to the washing station.
The washed coffees are first washed with water from a nearby river, after which they are pulped by an old Agard pulping-machine. The mucilage is removed by traditional fermentation, which lasts 36-48 hours depending on the weather conditions. The coffee is then dried on raised African beds (over 120 beds are present at the washing station) for 10-12 days.
