As we roll over the halfway point in the countdown, it seems fitting to share another coffee from one of the most recognisable origins, none other then Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia
Words by Toasted Espresso:
The Banko Gotiti Cooperative is located in the Gedeb village in the Gedeo Zone in Ethiopia.
Farmers selectively handpick cherry and deliver it to Banko Gotiti washing station. At the station, employees hand sort incoming cherry to remove any under- or over-ripes or damaged cherry.
All accepted cherry is then laid to dry in thin layers on raised beds for approximately 21 days. The station has 89 drying beds and each bed is marked with a code that makes it simple to keep track of traceability and processing status.
Altitude: 1870 - 1980 masl
If you loved this and day 3, you owe it to yourself to get on over to Toasted Coffee to indulge further.
