Ethiopia Guji Layo Taraga

Ethiopia Guji Layo Taraga
Layo Taraga Washing Station was founded in the year 2000, and serves 500 smallholder farms, each of whom owns about 1/2 hectare of land in the area around Haro Wachu town in the Uraga District. Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers, many of whom own as little as 1/8 hectare on average, deliver cherry by weight to receive payment at a market rate.
According to the washing station manager, this lot is a selection of Bourbon and Typica variety coffees. While these are two varieties are better-known in Central and South America, the same terms are used colloquially in Ethiopia to describe certain coffee-berry-disease-resistant cultivars. The Ethiopian "Bourbon" and "Typica" varieties are typically genetically removed from the ones found elsewhere around the world.
For the Natural coffees, cherries are collected, sorted, and placed on raised beds where they are moved and sorted daily for an average of 5-10 days.
