Ethiopia Worka Sakaro – 10oz


Recent changes in the Ethiopian export laws have opened new opportunities to develop relationships with vertically integrated
suppliers. Mijane Woresa, who has worked in coffee for more than 30 years, recently seized on the opportunity and establish an
export company along with his sons, which allows them to directly offer lots from their two washing stations: Halo Hartume and
Worka Sakaro, located within the Gedeb district. The Ethiopia Gedeb Washed Worka Sakaro is sourced from 410 farmers who
cultivate coffee on small plots and deliver their cherry to the Worka Haro washing station. On arrival, cherries are carefully hand
sorted and floated to separate out less dense beans, then depulped, fermented for 48 hours, and washed and classified again in
channels. The parchment is placed on raised beds where it is hand sorted again and dried over a period of 12 to 15 days. As a
family owned business, Mijane and his sons emphasize social impact in the communities where they source coffee. They have
invested in more localized cherry collection sites to reduce the transportation cost for smaller producers. They have also
contributed to road construction projects that make travel for everyone a bit easier, investing in school infrastructure projects
and making sure the children have equipment to play sports.
