Refisa is a washing station located in West Arsi with 389 active farmer members that deliver cherries. This washing station is owned by SNAP COFFEE exporters. The cultivars are Welisho and Kurume.  Bordering Bale Mountain National Park’s Harenna Forest, this is an area that just recently started to see a lot of investment from producers, and the results are clearly shown in the cup!

Cherries are collected manually and hand sorted.  The cherries are pulped by a traditional Agaarde Discpulper. Skin and fruit pulp are removed before the machine grades the parchment in water as 1st or 2nd quality, determined by density. Wet fermentation lasts for 72 hours, then the cherries are washed in channels, and graded in water by density. The lower density (lower quality) will float and are removed, leaving only the denser and therefore higher quality beans which are separated as higher grade lots.

After fermentation, soaking takes place for 2 hours.  Coffee is then piled up in layers which are 2cm in height and dried over a 10 day period then followed by hand sorting for 2-4 hours.  This is a certified EU Organic coffee.

This is a beautiful example of an elegant and citrus-forward washed Ethiopian coffee.
