Ethiopia Sidama - Werka Refisa


“Sidama is a province in the southern part of Ethiopia, and is a larger region that comprises Yirgacheffe town and its surrounding coffeelands. Its name is not as immediately recognizable as Yirgacheffe, but coffees from Sidama are diverse in profile and the highest-quality lots have crisp lemon acidity and lots of clarity.

This coffee is from the Werka Coffee Washing Station in theworeda, or village of Nensebo, in the town of Werka. The washing station is used by 700–800 farmers, each of whom grows coffee on an average of 3 hectares of land. The typical farm here is also planted with false banana and corn plants, and Acacia trees for shade. The farms range in altitude from 1900–2050 meters. Average daily temperatures of up to about 77° Fahrenheit, with cool evenings of about 60° Fahrenheit.

The washing station produces both Washed and Natural coffees: The Washed lots are fermented under water for 48 hours before the mucilage is removed; the coffee is dried on raised beds in a windy area, to speed the drying process. The washing water is purified and recycled for other uses.” (Cafe Imports)

Ethiopian coffees are a great place to explore floral, sweet, or tea-like flavors.  Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, and selections from this region produce exciting and vibrant flavors year round.
