Ethiopia Wolichu Wachu Coffee
Wolichu Wachu is a washing station in the Haro Wachu kebele within the Uraga district in Guji. Uraga is one of the newer coffee producing areas of Guji, with coffee only being produced there for the last 10 years, prior to that it was too cold for coffee. The altitude in the area ranges from 2100 up to 2350masl at its peak. This washing station is owned by Haileslassie Ambaye, who have washing stations around Southern Ethiopia. The washing station purchases cherries from small producers in the area and these are typically small farmers with between 0.5 and 3 hectares of land which is managed organically with compost and is often grow within the native forest. There is a mix of varieties in the area, some of which are local landrace selections and other selections from the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre.
The coffee delivered to the Wolichu Wachu washing station is pulped, fermented under water and then washed before being placed on raised beds under shade to skin dry for 24 hours before being moved to sun drying for another 14 days. At this site the team are very selective about cherry quality ensuring only the ripest are bought and make sure the coffee is dried slowly with a skin drying phase to start the process.

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.
