Four hundred kilometers southwest of Addis Ababa, this sweet, bright coffee grows in the Gera district near the city of Djimma. The area just north of the Gojeb River is full of diverse crops. Spices, corn, and teff (a grain used to make Ethiopia’s spongy bread, injera) all grow here, and higher up, you will find coffee.
This coffee is hand-picked by small farmers and laid out to dry. This region has historically produced naturally dried coffees, but many are turning their efforts towards specialty washed coffee – with delicious results. After drying, the beans are then carefully sorted to remove any defects, allowing the natural flavors of heirloom coffee varieties to carry through into the cup.
