About The Coffee:This coffee was produced by local smallholder producers in the Konga kebele, or village, in the Yirgacheffe growing area of Ethiopia and was processed at the Konga washing station
Yirgacheffe is a picturesque region, with altitude ranges from 1,700 to 2,200 meters above sea level, providing the coffee plants with the perfect combination of temperature and rainfall, resulting in slow maturation and concentrated flavours.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically grown on very small plots of land by farmers who also grow other crops.
The majority of smallholders will deliver their coffee in cherry to a nearby washing station or central processing unit, where their coffee will be sorted, weighed, and paid for or given a receipt. Coffee is then processed, usually washed or natural, by the washing station and dried on raised beds.
