Ethiopia – Washed Yirgacheffe – Grade 2 – Adorsi B17529
Testi Adorsi Washing Station was built in 2001 and became part of the Testi family of washing stations in 2017. Today it serves about 500 smallholder producers in the area, most of whom grow coffee on around 2 hectares of land. The most common variety here is Kurume, or Kudhume. This is a landrace variety that is relatively common in Yirgacheffe; the seeds tend to be quite small in size.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level: The average producer delivers their cherry to the washing station, where it is blended with other producers' deliveries and processed as necessary. Here, the Washed coffees are picked ripe, rinsed clean, depulped, fermented overnight and then dried on raised beds for 10-15 days.
