This family-run washing station is devoted to producing extraordinary coffee season after season. Worka Sakaro buys from 400 smallholder farmers in the Gedeb district, due south of Yirgacheffe.
Over the years, coffee farming took hold in the region and Gedeb coffee has now made a name for itself around the world, gaining the recognition it deserves. Featuring fruity and floral notes, coffee from this region has similar flavours to the varietals from the Yirgacheffe region further north.

Aside from its near-legendary status as the “birthplace” of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including but not limited to the incredible diversity of flavour and character that exists among micro-regions, specifically within this southwestern Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe whereas whose names alone conjure thoughts of the finest coffees in the world. Coffee was literally made to thrive in the lush environment Yirgacheffe’s forests provide, developing nuanced floral characteristics, articulate sweetness and sparkling acidity.

Most Yirgacheffe coffee is prepared by the conventional wet method, in which the skin and pulp are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried, encouraging a cleanly high-toned, often intensely floral- and citrus-toned cup. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this striking and unusual coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops.
