Description:

We planned on keeping this one to ourselves, it is  honestly, get it before the roastery realizes I took some from their section. And just a quick note on it's cup profile, when roasted light, this one reminds us of the Gesha variety; dynamic, vibrant, and floral.

The Goraa Natural is produced at the Suke Drying Station station in Shaakkiso, Guji, which falls under the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. This coffee is produced by Sookoo Coffee. This area is oftentimes mistakenly known as Sidamo Guji, but instead should be known only as Guji Zone or East-Guji on its own. The approximately 23 farmers that deliver cherry to this washing station, come from the ‘kebele’ or village known as Uddo Hadammaa, have between 2.5 and 3 Ha of land and their farms sit at an elevation of between 2,000 and 2,200 m.a.s.l. These producers generally grow and this lot is primarily comprised of the 74110 and 74112 varieties, which are local varieties selected by Ethiopia's Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC). Goraa is the name of a tree or bush that produces wild berries, a bush quite common in the area and forests of the region 

 

During drying, the beds hold a maximum layer density of 4cm and the cherries are moved around on the beds 6 times per day. This reduces the risk of “over fermentation” during drying, as well as the potential for defects. In addition, the standard drying time for their coffee is between 21-28 days. 

 

Between harvests, Sookoo Coffee farmers are educated on good agricultural practices in order to help improve the quality of their cherry. The company also provides pre-harvest loans to farmers who need it, for example to pay for hired labor to do maintenance on the farm, such as weeding and planting. The drying stations also employ a ‘woman-first’ policy and the company they have built a school for the children. Roads have also been built to improve the infrastructure; if you have been to Ethiopia before, you know how much this is needed! 

We get notes of Blackberry Jam, Cherry, Vanilla, and an interesting Floral finish.
