With a cup that’s clean and complex, beautifully acidic and enticingly sweet, it’s easy to see why Uraga has been increasingly gaining a reputation for some of the most distinct coffees of Ethiopia.
Guji-native Tadesse Edema is a pioneer among producers in Uraga. He was among the first to build a washing station in the region. His Tabe Burka washing station was in 2008.
Tadesse is a community leader and has built schools and roads in the region. In addition to washing stations, he owns two farms - one in Shakiso and another in Anasora. During the ten years when the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) restricted direct exports, Tadesse delivered his lots to the regional warehouse where traceability was obscured.
Beginning in the 2019/2020 season, Tadesse is finally able to deliver his world-class coffees directly to us.
