Ethiopia Reko Coffee

Its back! To mark the first arrivals of the 2021 harvest it feels only right to welcome the brighter weather with a classic bright coffee from Ethiopia’s infamous Reko washing station. Delicate and complex, you’ll find the Reko is perfectly suited to pour over filter methods with Bergamot, Melon and Chamomile just the start of the citrus and floral descriptors from the Climpson team.

The Yirgacheffe region has almost always been synonymous with intensely floral and elegant cup profiles. The local heirloom varieties are descendant from native Typica found in the surrounding forests and the washed processing here is so rigorously controlled that the intensity and clarity of flavour is certainly no surprise. Set on the namesake mountain, the Reko washing station acts as a service point for the local smallholders they buy cherry from. With upwards of 800 farmers harvesting very small areas, and lacking the infrastructure to process this, the washing station is structured to select, separate and control all post-harvest processing. The greater collective input increases the production volume and quality, also leading to better prices for the community.

The Reko washing station is privately owned by Masreshu Sima and has spent many years improving the traceability of their supply chain. Recent political changes now allow for these coffees to eschew the standard ECX auction platform and be sold directly to trusted export partners. With training and education at the forefront of the Reko mission, a more transparent supply network comes full-circle with more specific feedback leading to tastier coffee each year.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
