Ethiopia. Wolichu Wachu
Region: Haro Wachu, Uraga, Guji
Altitude: 2100 - 2300 masl
The Wolichu Wachu washing station was founded in 2017 and serves 4,500 local smallholder producers in and around the town of Haro Wachu, in the Urga district of Guhi in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. The average producer here farms on half a hectare of land and delivers coffee in cherry form to the washing station, where it is processed as necessary.
The cherry delivered to Wolichu is said to be of 90% Bourbon & 10% Typica but also these varietals are used colloquially to describe certain Ethiopian cultivars that perhaps are more disease resistant but of not same genealogy as those found in Central / South America.
