Uraga is a woreda in the Guji zone, where coffee is grown on very small farms (less than ½ hectare each on average) alongside corn, barley, beans, and wheat. Both Washed and Natural coffees are produced at the Uraga washing station.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers – many of whom own less than ½ 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 information about whose coffee harvest is in which bag or which lot.

What makes up Ethiopia Uraga?

Varietals

Ethiopian Heirloom varietal

The Ethiopian Heirloom name is used to describe indigenous heirloom varieties resulting from cross-breeding between species and varietals rather than stemming from one particular variety.

The location

Coffee from Ethiopia

Seen as the birthplace of domesticated coffee, there not many more exciting times at the Sample Roastery as when our fresh Ethiopian lots arrive. There’s a lot to love about Ethiopian coffee

Farm processes

Washed process

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
