Quality Report - Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Washed

About This Coffee

The Konga Wete Webanchi washing station is a great example of specialty coffee production coming together with supporting the local community. The station is built next to a school near the town of Wete, and both Primrose and Project Origin work closely with the teachers and staff to provide the support they need to educate local children. As a result, we can improve quality of life while simultaneously improving quality of coffee at the washing station. Now, isn’t that what specialty coffee should be all about?!

When Meseret and Abraham, the wife and husband team that own Primrose, were looking for the site of a new washing station, they chose this spot, as it meant the station would have easy access to electricity – no easy feat in parts of rural Ethiopia. The access to electricity means the station can continue to process coffee after sunset, a task commonly made difficult at other washing stations. We have been working with the team at Konga Wete Webanchi washing station on their carbonic maceration processing, and the results continue to please many people around the world.
