    A native of Guji, Tadesse Edema is a pioneer among producers in Uraga and was one of the first to build a washing station in the region. His Tabe washing station was constructed over 12 years ago, paving the way for Oromia Union to enter and construct their well known Layo Teraga Cooperative WS. Seven years ago Tome washing station was completed on the other side of the ridge, facing the river that divides Hambela from Uraga. Tadesse is a community leader and has built schools and roads in the region. In addition to washing stations, he owns two farms - one in Shakiso and another in Anasora.

    Yandaro washing station is located in the valley of a river with the same name. The growing area around the station benefits from being close to the Kibira Rainforest. A rainforest is a healthy ecosystem that helps keep up the groundwater reserves and nutrition in the soil for the region around it. With its closeness to a large river, Yandaro has a very strategic location in a high-potential coffee region. The station services 3500 local coffee producers from 22 hills or collines around the station. The average altitude in the area is 1800m. During the harvest season, Yandaro processes more than 1200 tons of coffee. The region has a mild climate with average temperatures between 18 and 25°, depending on the altitude.

    The Natural Reserve Cerro Datanli – El Diablo is a high massif located between the cities of Matagalpa and Jinotega. It’s a magical place, with butterflies dancing around coffee bushes that cling to impossibly steep mountainsides in the shade of lush cloud forest. In total, there are around 300 owners, small and medium scale producers, who grow coffee and other products and have developed agricultural production systems adapted to agro-ecological conditions.

    Its name comes from the mountains that makes up the Natural Reserve Datanlí- El Diablo, in the Cordillera Isabelia. Datanlí is an indigenous word that means “where water falls.” This region is one of the most rich and diverse ecosystems in Jinotega, a place with beautiful and impressive forests and where water sources originate from the top of the mountains and fall all the way to the farms of countless coffee growers. The water that falls from this beautiful reserve helps these producers with favourable conditions for the production of their specialty coffees.

    Producer - José Olivio Villatoro Castillo

    In the year 1850, Olivio’s grandfather planted the first coffee tree and Finca Villatoro was officially born. Almost a century later, in 1940, Olivio decided to change the name of the farm with the objective of reflecting the essence of the region in a better way. He named it Los Capulines, honouring a native species of trees commonly grown in the farm and its surroundings.

    Olivio Villatoro, a 91-years-old man, is the one and only reponsible for the management, supervision and daily labors of the farm. His grandson, Eduardo Herrera Villatoro, discovered the specialty coffee market one year ago, and after selling conventional coffees for many decades and noticing the high potential of the coffee, he started the process of convincing his grandfather to improve their harvest and post-harvest practices. This led to an amazing, bright, balanced coffee, but most important, reflects the hard work and persistence of four generations.

    During the ten years of ECX restriction, Tadesse had little choice but to deliver his lots to the regional warehouse where traceability was obscured though these deliveries no doubt pleased the buyers of his Q1 Guji. This year, with new regulations allowing transparency through the supply chain, Tadesse is finally able deliver his world class coffees directly.

    The washing stations distribute seedlings for tree renovation, as well as fertilizer and other farming inputs. Each washing station is managed by an agronomist. They organize farming training in farmer groups, teach good agricultural practices on farm demo plots and watch over the coffee processing. Next to that, they have also developed programs for economic development together with sustainability organization Kahawatu.

    Handege Coffee Mill or ‘factory’, is affiliated to the larger producer cooperative known as Ritho Society. Founded in 1972, Ritho works with coffee ‘factories’ throughout Kiambu county. The name “Handege” is derived from Ndege, the Swahili word for aeroplane.
    Regional soils are well nourished with red volcanic rock, black cotton and patches of loam. Annual precipitation of 1000mm per year ensures that the soil is well saturated. Handege is a relatively small factory, with an annual production of about 150 metric tons. Cherries are pulped, fermented and washed, then sun-dried on raised African drying tables. Dry parchment is then taken to a dry mill for hulling and grading after which it is taken to a secure warehouse prior to Auction.
    Similarly to other factories and estates in the same area, there is a nice range of indigenous shade trees and the area hosts all sorts of wild animals such as Antelopes, Hyenas, Porcupines, Squirrels, Anteaters, Monkeys and many others.

    Yirgacheffe Gedeb is sourced by METAD Agricultural Development plc on their Yirgacheffe Gedeb Estate. This site is about 30ha and has its own washing station and located between 1,700 and 2,200 masl with an annual rainfall of 1,200 mm to 1,599 mm in the Gedeb District of the Southern Nations and Nationalities & People Region Gedeo Zone. Numerous small holder producers contribute to this lot.

    The soils in the southern and western parts of the coffee-growing regions of Ethiopia are of volcanic origin, with a high nutrient-holding capacity for clay minerals. The soil type of the area is ‘Clay-loam’ soil. All of the coffee-growing Regions have fertile, friable, loamy soils, with a depth of at least one and a half meters. The topsoil is dominantly dark-brown or brownish in color, with a PH ranging mostly from 5 to 6.8 (water extract).

Brewing Guide

[email protected]

Plunger

Plunger

Notes

French press, or plunger, is consistent and really easy. It can brew a richer, fuller cup than pour over and is preferred by a lot of people for its flavour and ease of use.

You can vary the amount of brewed coffee you need by changing the amount of beans you grind. We aim for 60-70g per litre of water. So, for one and a bit cups, you’ll need 20 grams and 300ml of water off the boil.

Drop your freshly ground coffee (coarse like salt and preferably from a burr grinder) into your plunger pot.

Add your boiled water vigorously (or stir quickly) to wet all the grounds. Let it brew for four minutes.

Using a spoon, gently collect the ground coffee that is floating on the top, and discard it. Plunge it down carefully. If you can’t push your plunger down with two fingers, then please stop (they have been known to break under pressure and burn people).

Pointers

  • If you can’t push the plunger down with two fingers then you have ground your coffee too fine, and it may not taste as desired.
  • If you like your coffee stronger, try using more ground coffee, i.e. 80g or 100g per litre. A stronger brew like this can mask the more floral and delicate notes of some coffees, so apply this rule with caution!
  • If the coffee tastes watery or weak, try brewing it for longer than 4 minutes OR try grinding it more finely.
  • If the coffee tastes astringent or dry, try grinding it more coarsely, or brewing for a shorter time.

Pour over

Pour over

Notes

Filter coffee is one of the gentlest ways to brew coffee. It is a method of brewing that we like the most for its clarity, flavour and accuracy.

For one cup of filter coffee, you need: a filter cone, filter paper, 15 grams of single origin coffee and a kettle of water. We’re using 60-70 grams of coffee per litre of water, so we’ll make a cup that is around 240ml of coffee.

The water will need to be just off the boil (around 92-96 C), so leave it to stand cooling for a couple of minutes after it’s boiled. While you’re waiting, rinse the paper filter with the boiling water to get rid of paper taint and warm your cup.

Your grind should be coarser than espresso but finer than french press – a medium grind ( with a quality burr grinder ). Over time, play around with the grind and find the sweet spot that appeals to your taste, but a grind that fills your cup in about two and a half minutes is a good place to be.

Place ground beans straight into the filter paper. Then, pour a small amount of water over the coffee to wet all the grounds ( bloom )

Leave it to soak through for about 40 seconds. This will allow the water to soak the grounds all the way to the bottom of the filter, setting you up for an even extraction.

Pour slowly in a circular motion to cover all the grounds, just so you raise the coffee bed a centimetre or two. Continue pouring slowly and consistently, maintaining the height of the coffee bed until you’ve added the 240ml of water. There shouldn’t be too much water left in the coffee once it has finished dripping.

Discard or compost your paper filter and use a new one every time.

Pointers

  • If you prefer a stronger cup, use a higher dose (80-90 grams per litre), but please adjust your grind to suit this – it may need to be finer.
  • If it tastes watery or too weak and filters through too quickly, try fining up your grind.
  • As the coffee ages (typically noticeable two weeks after Roast Date), the water will take longer to filter through, and you should coarsen your grind to adjust for this.
  • If your cup tastes too bitter or astringent, try coarsening your grind.
  • If your cup tastes sour or grassy, it may be that your dose is too high. Try using less coffee per cup to get a sweeter beverage.

Aeropress

Aeropress

Notes

With a dose slightly higher than pour over or French press, you will need 15 grams to 200ml of water.

The brewing water should be not long off the boil (about 95-97 degrees), so boil the water and let stand.

Grind the beans at a coarseness equivalent to drip filter (roughly halfway between espresso and French press).

Invert the Aeropress so the filter is upside down at the top and the rubber plunger is set at mark 4 on the main brewing chamber (this will hold 200ml of water). Remove the filter holder, insert a paper filter and rinse both the paper and the brewing chamber with boiled water.

Place the ground coffee directly on the rubber plunger and add water vigorously until the chamber is almost full. The bloom from the fresh coffee should have about half a centimetre clearance from the top of the chamber.

Twist on the filter holder (with rinsed filter paper) and let stand for 1 minute, then stir gently and leave for another minute.

Carefully turn the Aeropress right way up over a preheated mug. Press down on the plunger until the brew chamber is almost empty, stopping just before you hear the hiss from the half centimetre air pocket.

Pointers

  • For a stronger brew, increase the steep time up to a minute and a half, or stir the brew before plunging.
  • If you can’t plunge without straining a muscle, try coarsening your grind or decreasing the dose.
  • To clean the Aeropress, simply pull apart and rinse in hot water. Grounds and the paper filter can be composted.

MoccaMaster / Automatic Drip Filter

MoccaMaster / Automatic Drip Filter

Notes

This method automates the pour over for a great tasting filter coffee. You will need some single origin filter roasted coffee, ground coarsely (like sea salt)

Preheat the MoccaMaster – Add some filtered water (150ml) to the water reservoir. Place a new clean filter in the coffee cone, switch the Mocca Master on and place the carafe under the cone. Allow the water to run through the the dripper, paper filter and into the carafe. Empty the carafe. This cleans the paper filter getting rid of any paper taste and also pre heats your carafe. It is now ready for use.

For 4 cups

35g of coarsely ground coffee – 500g of filtered water
Set water flow control to off “X”
At 45 seconds, stir the wet grounds making sure they are evenly covered. Now open flow control to half open.
All finished, brew time should be about 3:30

For 8 cups

70g of coarsely ground coffee – 1L of filtered water
Set water flow control to off “X”
At 45 seconds, stir the wet grounds making sure they are evenly covered. Now open flow control to full open.
All finished, brew time should be about 6:00

Pointers

  • We recommend anywhere between 65-75g/L for your brew ratio.  
    Feel free to play with this ratio to suit your taste.
  • You can dial in your grind size to taste – too weak?  Go finer.  Too strong?  Go coarser.

Syphon

Syphon

Notes

A syphon gives you clarity of flavour with added body. It’s a beautiful method to observe and produces one of the best cups of coffee.

We prefer a butane burner for better heat control and overall efficiency. You will also need a wooden paddle, a timer and 23.5g of freshly ground, filter roasted coffee (medium/coarse the consistency of sand).

Fill the bottom chamber with 250ml of filtered water and bring up to boil on full heat. When boiling fit the top chamber on, tightening the rubber seal.

As the water rises up to the top chamber ensure your cloth filter is central with no air bubbles passing up the side.

When the water level reaches half way you can drop your 23.5g of coffee in stirring thoroughly making sure all grounds are wet.

When all the water is in the top chamber back off the heat just enough to maintain all the water in the top WITHOUT it boiling. Start your timer.

Three distinct layers will now be visible ensuring your on track to perfect extraction.

At 30 seconds using the paddle gently fold the crust back in on itself as evenly as you can. As soon as this is done (or at 40 seconds) start a whirlpool by slowly stirring in a clockwise direction no more than 5 times, at the same time you must turn off the heat.

Your brew will now make its way back down to the bottom chamber leaving a perfect dome of grounds over the cloth filter.

Disconnect the top chamber, pour and enjoy !

Pointers

  • We are aiming for a ratio of 9g/100ml. It is a high dose but contact time is quick.
  • Timing is everything, too slow and it will taste astringent, too fast and it will taste watery.
  • Make sure you don’t boil the coffee in the top chamber at any stage this will ruin your brew.
  • Pull the heat away as soon as you start stirring your whirlpool as there is always a few second delay before the coffee travels back down to the bottom.
