Nestled between Shakiso and Hambela, Uraga has been increasingly gaining a reputation for some of the most distinct coffees of Ethiopia. The Tome washing station site is named after the town in which it is located. Sitting at about 1950 meters above sea level, Tome Station marks the lowest end of the altitude spectrum and farms reach up to 2200 meters. This privately owned washing station processes the coffees from out-growers in the surrounding highland towns called “kebeles”. Tome is specifically buying coffee from the kebeles of Tome, Tobitu, Gomero and Koba. There are hundreds of farmers from these towns selling coffee to Tome. With farms that are often less than a hectare in size, the small batches from each farm are then blended together in larger process batches organised by delivery dates and grade. This is a grade 1 coffee, the top grade, which means it’s been sorted several times in order to remove the maximum number of defects.

The coffee growing region of Guji once was included in the Sidama designation, but in the year 2015 was recognized and separated as a distinct zone by the ECX. The merit for this new classification lies in the unique high quality of coffees from Guji, which include the woreda of Oddo Shakiso, Addola Redi, Uraga, Kercha, and Bule Hora.

Larger private farms are becoming more commonplace in Shakiso, which also happens to be a hotbed of mining for precious metals.
