A highly versatile coffee, we recommend it for all manual brewing methods as well as espresso.
The Gore Kone washing station supports the livelihoods of 700-800 small holder farms and is located on the Nensebo river and the village of Werka in West Arsi. Upon arriving at the station the coffees are pulped and fermented in large water bins for 42-46 hours with the water being refreshed every 12 hours until the parchment is ready for drying. Before being placed on drying beds for 10-12 days the coffee is washed with water from the Gerenbicho river. After the coffee has reached optimal moisture content it is packed and laid to 'rest' for a period of 30 days.
