Ethiopia | Adado Washing Station

Single Origin

This product is SOLD OUT.

This coffee comes from the Adado Washing Station in the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. Most coffee in Ethiopia is grown by small shareholders who grow coffee on as little as ⅛ of an acre before delivering the ripe cherries to collective washing stations where it is sorted, processed, and exported.

Most of these coffees are heirloom varieties, meaning they are from coffee plants that have grown naturally in these areas for hundreds of years, without independent evolution or hybridization. These coffees have so much mystique, as they are not as traceable as some coffees that come from one specific producer, but still yield incredible profiles that are sweet and balanced with juicy acidity and floral aromas.

From Cafe Imports:

This coffee comes from our washing-station partners at Adado, which is in the kebele, or village, of Shara, in the woreda,or district, of Guanga, in the Yirgacheffe region. This coffee is named after the local tribe, "Adado." In these coffees, typically apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup. The Natural process of these lots really complement the typical profile of the washed coffee beautifully and even shine through the heavy berry overtones in a natural process.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers—many of whom own less than 1/2 hectare of land, and as little as 1/8 hectare on average—deliver cherry by weight to receive payment at a market rate. The coffee is sorted and processed into lots without retaining information about whose coffee harvest is in which bag or which lot.
