Ethiopia Golocha Harrar - Natural Process
This is a naturally processed, grade 2 coffee from the Harrar region of Eastern Ethiopia. This lot was cultivated by 10 smallholder farmers, each with an average of 5 hectares of land. Farms range between 1,550 and 2,050masl and cultivate heirloom varietals such as Buna Guracha, Shumbure, Arso and Abadir.
This coffee uses a traditional Ethiopian natural process. Ripe cherries are sun-dried on raised African beds for 8-12 days depending on climatic conditions. During this time they are handpicked and raked to ensure a consistent drying process. After drying the coffee is milled by Samson Girma.
Harrar is one of Ethiopia's eastern-most coffee producing regions. The ancient walled city of Harrar is famous for its spotted hyenas, who the locals have fed and coexisted with for generations.
