Uraga is both the name of the greater area and this specific washing station. Its located in the Sonkolle Kebele (village) in Guji. The Washing Station is located above 2000 masl, and the farms are located at even higher altitudes. There are a lot of new plantings in the area and even though the process here is traditional, with wet fermentation, grading in channels by water and drying on raised beds, the coffee is shining with unique character. The producer, Israel Degfa, is investing in both supporting local farmers and their communities, and in post-harvest development and quality control

The quality of coffee depends on factors such as region, terroir, variety and processing. Together they contribute to each coffee’s unique flavor. Through the roasting process the team at Langøra want to highlight these characteristics, so that the natural flavors and aromas of the coffee are preserved.
