Qoree Washing Station is located in Gera district, in the well-known coffee-growing region, Djimma. Gera is in the highlands and gets cooler, wetter weather than other areas of Djimma. There is also more shade cover that, combined with frequent rainfall, results in well-irrigated farms producing sweet, flavorful coffees. Most farms in Gera are grown in semi-forest systems, typically under 1 hectare.

Farmers selectively handpick cherry and most deliver their cherry to Qoree washing station. At intake, cherry is floated to remove underripes and visually inspected for any damaged cherry. Cherry is pulped on the station’s disc pulper and wet fermented for 18 to 24 hours. After fermentation, parchment is washed in clean water and moved to raised beds to dry. At the beds, workers will pick over drying parchment to remove any damaged or defective parchment. Drying parchment is turned regularly to ensure even drying.  Parchment typically takes about 14 to 18 days to dry.

Grades in Ethiopia depend on visual inspection for defects and on cup quality. Grade 1 is considered the highest quality coffee. Grade 1 and 2 are considered specialty coffee, grade 3-9 are classified as commercial coffee. Grade 1 is free of cup faults and taints and has zero quakers.

Cupping Notes: Aromas of floral honey and citrus. Clean and juicy cup with flavours of lemon jam and black tea. Round and buttery body with a nippy citric acidity.
