Ethiopia Tibe Haro Uraga

  • $20.49

Look for notes of key lime pie, peach, basil and lavender dark chocolate. Founded by Fekadu Jebril in 2010 and named for his wife, the Hana Asrat washing station is situated in the forest of Yabitu Koba/Harsu near Tibe Haro seifir (neighborhood). Like in most of Ethiopia, growers in the Uraga district are smallholders, aka “garden farmers,” so called because most of them are producing coffee in the “garden” areas around their homes, and often harvesting cherries from coffee occurring naturally on the land where they live. Farm sizes tend to be between .5 to 2 hectares in size on average, though occasionally can reach upwards of 10 hectares. The average yearly yield in green coffee from the smaller farms is around 2 to 4 bags.

Washing Station / Elevation Hana Asrat

 

Go south, deep into the green hills of Ethiopia. Past Yirgacheffe. Past Sidama and into the red roads that draw you into the Guji Zone. Keep on going until you reach the densely forested, mountainous Uraga District where narrow dirt roadways are few and navigation is, well, shall we say, “challenging?” This is about as far south as coffee grows in Ethiopia, but it is more than worth the endless bouncing hours and challenging infrastructure.

The Uraga district offers up some of the highest elevations throughout Ethiopia, with coffees that are dense in structure, loaded with fruits and sweetness. These high elevations and dense cell structures mean slower ripening times, which translate to simply gorgeous coffees.

 Many of the trees in this area are younger, having been introduced through the JARC (Jimma Agricultural Research Center) for particular cup quality in these microclimates. These varieties are identified by the numerical designations - 74110 and 74112. Other coffee varieties are numerous throughout these growing areas and are predominantly Ethipian heirloom varieties along with what are sometimes referred to as “Landrace,” a term for naturally adapted local varieties.

Overall Score: 95

"A uniquely composed washed Ethiopia cup: citrusy, herbaceous, chocolaty, exceptionally and complexly nuanced."
