From Horsham Coffee Roaster:
Ethiopia has to be one of our favourite origins producing a wide range of flavour profiles and they are know for their juicy, floral and high cupping score coffees. Coffee trees are native to Ethiopia and can be found growing in wild forests. The majority of coffee in Ethiopia is grown and harvested by small hold farmers and processed at centralized washing stations. Most farmers have just a few hundred trees which isn't enough to produce microlots of their own so by working as collective groups they are able to produce large lots to a high standard.
Nensebo Refisa is a washing station located in West Arsi Sidamo with 389 organic certified farming members. They grown specific varietals, Kurume and Wolisho usually only found in Ethiopia. The washing station is owned by Snap Coffee who are dedicated to supporting small hold coffee farmers at three washing stations. Their role is to ensure that they post harvest processing is done to the best possible standard to achieve high cup scores for both washed and natural processed coffees. Higher cup scores means better payments to the farmers who grown and harvest the coffee.
Coffee is hand harvested by farmers during the seasons. Most have around 1-2 hectares planted with coffee with tree numbers ranging from a few hundred to close to 2000. Each tree yields around 3kg of coffee cherry per year.
