Switch Espresso are back, and with them comes our second offering from Ethiopia, this time from the growing region of Yirgacheffe.

Words by Switch Espresso:

Approximately 800 coffee producers from Edido region deliver ripe cherries to Wonberta’s Edido washing station where the cherries are sorted and dried on raised beds. Generally the smallholder owns approximately 1⁄2 hectare of land. Cherries are regularly turned every 2 to 3 hours in the first few days to promote even drying of the cherries for five to six weeks.

The dried cherries are then hulled and stored in the high altitude and cool temperature washing station to let the coffees rest and preserve the longevity of the coffees.
