Background Story

Aricha is the name of the washing station where this coffee is processed. Edido is the village, or kebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe. Aricha is about 8 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. We like the complex, almost tropical quality of coffees from Aricha, along with their juicy fruitiness and sugary, floral sweetness.


Roaster's Thoughts

Not like other washed Ethiopians which are mainly floral, this Aricha has a little more fruitiness. This fruity characteristics makes this coffee more special in the cup. You will be definitely experiencing a very good quality Ethiopian coffee.


How this coffee is roasted

This coffee is light roasted but well developed to enhance its fruitiness.
