We are pleased to offer you another stunning coffee from the Geruke Co-operative. Another gorgeous washed Ethiopian with delicate taste notes of apricot, jasmine and white grape.

This lot comes to us from the 1,753 member farmers of the Geruke Mazoriya Co-operative which was established in 1977.  The washing station, like the majority of the small farms, is located in the Jimma Zone, in the Mana Woreda, Geruke Kebele, near the town of Jimma. The station is run by 5 full time employees with the support of an additional 300 casual staff during the harvest months of October to December. 

This relatively large area covers over 1200 hectares of land and is made up of nutrient rich sandy loam soil.  Coffee grows under a natural shade canopy of other crops such as false banana. Farmers are dedicated to sustainable farming practices and use only organic fertiliser at the base of their trees which is usually made of manure mixed with discarded coffee cherry pulp made available to farmers at the end of each season from the washing station.

Ripe red cherry is carefully hand harvested here which is very labour intensive. Cherry is then floated in water tanks and separated by density and quality with the floaters (under ripe cherries) removed. The parchment is then de-pulped mechanically, washed again and fermented in water once more before being moved to raised beds to sun dry, usually for a period of 10-14 days.
