From Outpost Coffee Roasters:

A delicate, sweet, floral cup, full of tropical fruit - from the Gora Kone washing station.

This is coffee from one of the privately owned washing stations in Nensebo. Nensebo is one of the woredas in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. Hills and mountain ranges characterise 70% of this woreda; the rest consists of arid lands and plateaus. Most of the population is muslim. Only 4.6 % has access to natural drinking water. Coffee is an important cash crop with over 5,000 hectares planted.

Whole ripe cherries are hand sorted for under-ripes and over-ripes by the farmers before they go into production. They are pulped by a disk pulper and graded in the pulper by density. The cherries are then fermented under water for 24-48 hours, depending on the weather conditions. After which they are graded in the washing channels by water flow that separates different weights of beans. They are then soaked 12-24 hrs in fresh, clean water before moving to the drying tables.
