Located in the beautiful mountainous landscapes of the highlands of Guji, Uraga is considered one of the highest-elevation coffee growing areas of Ethiopia with altitude of 2,310 meters. The coffee is picked in the morning, and pulped in the afternoon. It is fully washed with approximately 24-48 hours of ferment time, which yields clarity of flavor and bright acidity. The coffee is then soaked for four hours before drying on raised beds.
This citrusy coffee is produced by the Yabitu Koba community, who deliver to the Gogugu Washing Station, located in the Wate Gogugu Village of the Uraga woreda (district). The wet mill is owned and operated by SNAP Speciality Coffees.
