Refisa Ethiopia

Coffee Story

Coffee Story

This lot is comprised of coffee from 648 smallholder farmers who are local to the Refisa washing station. Farmers deliver ripe cherries to the washing station where they are carefully sorted and floated to isolate out only the highest quality for processing. The cherries are pulped and then fermented in water for 36-48 hours depending on ambient conditions. The coffee is then washed and dried in the sun on raised drying beds until optimum moisture content is reached. The Refisa washing station is located in Nensebo Woreda, Sidamo, in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. The region has a reputation for producing some of the most characterful coffees in the world. The combination of high altitude, plentiful sunshine, and unique-indigenous heirloom-varieties all contribute to a clean, citric, sweet and floral cup profile.
