Arsosala is a washing station founded in 2015 that currently serves about 1,200 smallholder producers in the Urga Woreda of Guji.
According to the washing station manager, most of the coffee delivered to the factory is Bourbon: While Typica and Bourbon are two varieties better-known in Central and South America, the same terms are used colloquially in Ethiopia to describe certain coffee-berry-disease-resistant cultivars. The Ethiopian “Bourbon” and “Typica” varieties are typically genetically removed from the ones found elsewhere around the world.
When we are selecting candidates to enter our exotic filter series the criteria is simple, we need a coffee that’s going to impress people and that’s what this is doing.
For us, this coffee is super easy to drink and those Jasmine notes were so impressive, something we don’t see in many coffees.
