Ethiopia Decaf – Swiss Water Process
Traceable To: Single Farmer Estate : Kossa Geshe

Cherry collected from across 2 zones (Abukado and Botto) on estate, then further separated into 3-4 lots per zone based on harvest collection time. Cherries are dried on tarps with close monitoring by staff. Abdul Wahid is slowly expanding raised beds, thus a small portion is currently dried on raised beds. Then decaffeinated by using Swiss water process.
About the Farm
Kossa Geshe is located in Western Ethiopia’s Limmu Kossa District, in the highlands of the Kebena Forest. This 1,000 hectare farm was established in 2009 as a land grant from Ethiopia’s investment agency to safeguard some of the last remaining dense forest in the country. Abdul runs the show. His first harvest was 2016 and Crop to Cup has bought every bean since, entranced by his qualities and the cup characteristics from day one. The story of Kossa Geshe is one of meteoric rise. In 2016 he began running the farm and two years later his coffee won a Good Food Award – one of the first coffees out of the west to earn the distinction and to truly compete with the excellent naturals coming from Southern Ethiopias Sidamo and Yirgacheffe regions. Abdul continues to reinvest. From a new moisture meter, to a new 7500 m sq drying patio (to go with raised beds) completed in 2018. It goes without saying that quality is continually on his mind.
