Mindblower Ethiopia Uraga Anaerobic Natural

Intense flavors of blackberry, blueberry and cabernet wine; that will blow your mind. Our newest Ethiopian Anaerobic Natural. Uraga station employees select only ripe, red cherry for Anaerobic Natural processing. The sealed, oxygen-less environment encourages specific microbial interactions, often resulting in bright, fruity naturals with complex floral and citrus notes. Farmers selectively handpick ripe cherry and deliver it to the station. At intake, employees visually inspect cherry and accept only fully ripe cherry for anaerobic fermentation. Selected cherry is tightly packed in GrainPro bags and sealed shut. Cherry ferments anaerobically (without oxygen) for 18 to 24 hours. After fermentation, cherry is carefully removed from bags and laid to dry in direct sunlight on raised beds. Workers turn cherry frequently to promote even drying. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks for cherry to dry. Grades in Ethiopia depend on visual inspection for defects and on cup quality. Grade 1 is considered the highest quality coffee. Grade 1 and 2 are considered specialty coffee, grade 3-9 are classified as commercial coffee. Grade 1 is free of cup faults and taints and has zero quakers. Our in-country partner has been experimenting with new processing methods as a way to increase value and stand out among a growing number of specialty washing stations in Ethiopia. They have been trialing anaerobic fermentation with several of their washing stations in Yirgacheffe since 2015. Uraga washing station receives cherry from farmers in the surrounding region. The station is located in Guji, a coffee growing region that was once part of Yirgacheffe but whose microclimate produces such unique coffee, that it was allocated as its own coffee growing region. Farming methods in the region remain largely traditional. Guji farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families. In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farms are also organic-by-default. Most farm work is done manually by the immediate family. To capitalize on the magnificent climate,

Uraga washing station provides training to help farmers produce better quality cherry. Training focuses on procedures for harvesting and transporting cherry. While Ethiopia is famous as coffee’s birthplace, today it remains a specialty coffee industry darling for its incredible variety of flavors. While full traceability has been difficult in recent history, new regulations have made direct purchasing possible. We’re partnering directly with farmers to help them produce top quality specialty lots that are now completely traceable, adding value for farmers and roasters, alike. The exceptional quality of Ethiopian coffee is due to a combination of factors. The genetic diversity of coffee varieties means that we find a diversity of flavor, even between (or within) farms with similar growing conditions and processing. In addition to varieties, processing methods also contribute to end quality. The final key ingredients for excellent coffee in Ethiopia are the producing traditions that have created the genetic diversity, processing infrastructure and great coffee we enjoy today. Most producers in Ethiopia are smallholders, and the majority continue to cultivate coffee using traditional methods. Coffee is almost entirely cultivated, harvested and dried using manual systems.

Klatch Coffee Roasting is committed to working with coffee farmers

who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with a dedication, passion and skill. Klatch works with, and offers their support to, these skilled producers for the sole purpose of presenting only the highest-quality artisan roasted coffee...

Mike Perry believes there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore he believes those who do the best work should get the best price; he does not believe in coffee subsidies.

Klatch Coffee believes working with these farmers to deliver the highest-quality coffees requires that they listen, learn, cup, and give feedback in their creation...

Mike believes that a coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee is an artisan and should be given his due. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality.

Klatch Coffee Roasting believes that great artisan roasted coffee is inherently produced through sustainable methods. They therefore only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.

Klatch seeks to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and therefore require their importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing Klatch Coffee to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
