Reko Washing Station
Kochere Wordea, Gedeo Zone
The coffee here is marked by its floral, tea-like, and complex quality, grown and processed only a stone’s throw away from the world’s most unique and rare varieties. Even among world-class coffees, Reko is the sparkling gem of washed Ethiopian flavor.
We've been working with the Reko Washing Station since 2013
They have long 36-hour fermentation times after the coffee is pulped, they thoroughly wash the coffee in long channels followed by a 12-hour soak, and then the coffee is dried on raised beds for about two weeks while workers pick through the parchment to clean it up. Like most great coffees, the brilliance lies in the details, and they pay attention to every detail.
