• Ariki Coffee •
This coffee is sourced from 600 family-owned farms organized around Feku Jiberil, at his coffee washing station located in the town of Tomme within the Guji Zone of the Oromia Region, Ethiopia. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the Feku’ s washing station where the cherries are sorted an immediately placed on raised beds and dried over a period of 18 to 21 days. The raised drying beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced to between 11.5 and 12 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
