Guji Uraga coffee comes from the Guji Uraga washing station, located in the Uraga district of the Guji zone in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. The woreda, or district, of Uraga is bordered on the south by Odo Shakiso, on the west by the Borena Zone, on the north by the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region, and on the east by Bore.
The washing station is located in the kebele of Solomo, where the washing station has 12 standardized washing tanks, 400 drying beds, and 5.2 hectares planted with coffee. The soil is fertile and red/brown in color, and coffee plants are shaded by Cordia Africana, Acacia, and Enset trees. The kebele averages 11.4–25.6° C, and receives around 1525 ml of yearly rainfall.
This lot of coffee underwent Natural processing with 20 days of fermentation in an anaerobic environment. Ripe cherry deliveries from smallholder contributing producers are first sorted by hand. The best cherries are then placed into special bags which are then sealed. Oxygen is removed from the bags with a vacuum, and the fermentation of the coffee produces CO2, creating an anaerobic environment in the bag. After 20 days of fermentation the cherries are removed from the bag and moved to dry on raised beds for 2–3 weeks until they reach their target humidity.
Coffee from Guji Uraga washing station is milled and prepped for export at Tracon Trading’s facility in Addis Ababa. There, coffee passes through several stages of manual and mechanical sorting.
