Ethiopia Wush Wush Natural

This naturally processed coffee is selectively harvested and hand sorted at the Wush Wush washing station in Ethiopia's Keffa Zone. Considered by many to be the birthplace of coffee, Keffa is where the legend of Kaldi, the goat herder, is said to have originated. Approximately 2500 farmers in the southwestern highlands of Ethiopia bring their coffee cherries to the washing station to be processed. This was the first year Wush Wush processed a natural coffee. Due to the wet weather, using this method requires careful monitoring and tight process control. The results of their rigorous labor is in the cup. We taste raspberry lemonade, semisweet chocolate, hibiscus, and orange preserves.

Information provided by Catalyst Trade:

"Lot 35 was selectively harvested, hand sorted again at the washing station before being subjected to a float tank to isolate the higher density cherries from the lower density cherries. Then, following a drain period, the cherries are taken to drying tables positioned under a shaded mesh canopy. It took close to 30 days to dry. This particular natural lot was the only other lot that was dried under a shaded canopy beside the Limited Oxygen. We tried several different drying methods at the washing station this year. This was the first year we did naturals because the weather is mostly wet, but implementing different careful process control steps, we were really happy with the results."
