Aricha is the name of the washing station where this coffee is processed. Edido is the village, or kebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe. Aricha is about 8 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. We like the complex, almost tropical quality of coffees from Aricha, along with their juicy fruitiness and sugary, floral sweetness.



The process of producing Washed coffees in Ethiopia will vary slightly from washing station to washing station, but generally speaking, the coffee is picked ripe and depulped the same day. There is usually a fermentation period of 8–12 hours in open-air tanks, then washed in water channels to remove the mucilage. The coffee seeds will be spread on raised beds to dry for 5–15 days, depending on the weather.


The cup has fresh bergamot, cocoa, and praline with mild fresh jasmine flavors, tart citric acidity, and mellow fruit-like sweetness.
