Impress the family with this beautiful coffee from the heartland. It might clash with Dad's only-get-it-out-for-Christmas local 'Port', but served alongside the pudding, it'll sing.
Aricha has become very well renowned since a handful of top coffee roasters in Europe and the US discovered the washing station's & producer's instinctive ability to present clarity and place in the coffee’s profile. The washing station’s natural processed coffees have been highly sort after by the fans of brassy, fruit-forward profiles, but their washed lots offer a more drinkable profile for those with a penchant for delicate, adult flavours - like an audiophile’s preference for sound stage and dynamics over loudness.
Aricha is the name of the washing station where this coffee is processed. Edido is the village, or Kebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe. Aricha is about 8 kilometres from the centre of Yirgacheffe Town. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. Typically,the coffees from Aricha are complex, with some tropical qualities, along with juicy fruitiness and sugary, floral sweetness.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers—many of whom own less than 1/2 hectare of land, and as little as 1/8 hectare on average—deliver cherry by weight to receive payment at a market rate. The coffee is sorted and processed into lots without retaining informationabout whose coffee harvest is in which bag or which lot.
