|Notes||Strawberry Candy, Chocolate, Lavender|
|Producer||Arsosala Washing Station|
|Process||Natural, Dried on raised beds|
The Arsosala washing station currently serves about 1,200 smallholder producers (normally less than 1 hectare of land per producer) in the Urga woreda (district) of Guji. While most coffee in this region is a mix of wild and unspecified varieties (“Heirloom”), Arsosala has cultivated Typica and Bourbon varieties which are genetically different from the varieties found in Central and South America.
Coffees are picked ripe and dried on raised beds. It typically takes 8–15 days to dry under sun and 15–20 days to dry when there are cloudy skies.
