This lot is comes from the Goro washing station, which is owned and run by Buno General Trading. The washing station is located at 2320masl and the total production from this site is around 600 bags of coffee. This area of Guji is one of the most exciting in all of Ethiopia, with very high altitudes and young, healthy plants. This area of Hambella has only recently started producing coffee, where before it was too cold, now coffee can grow and thrive. Since production started relatively recently, the plants are still young and full of health and the slow growth and maturity means that the cup quality in the area is outstanding.
Producers around the Goro washing station have between 3 and 15 hectares of land, far more than the Ethiopian national average, which means that farmer training and incentivising farmers to improve quality is easier and more attainable.
