Aricha is like an old friend to us here. It is our 3rd year offering this cooperatives coffee. Yirgacheffe coffees are known for their floral and citrus quality. Aricha has always been a benchmark of these characteristics.

Coffee from Aricha is typically grown on a very small scale in the garden of the producers, where it is intercropped with other subsistence crops. During processing, the skin of ripe cherries is physically removed using a pulp machine and water. The mucilage around the parchment is removed during the fermentation process. Once fermentation is completed, the parchment is thoroughly washed with clean spring water to remove all traces of fermented mucilage. At Aricha, like many wet-mills in Ethiopia, the parchment is dried on African raised beds under shade for 10-14 days. This gives the coffee stability and longevity of flavour.
