About this coffee
The Konga cooperative is one in a network of cooperatives in the Yirgacheffe region. Its 2,400 smallholder members distinguish themselves with their impeccable attention to detail in processing. Ethiopian heirloom varietals are chosen from the forest and transplanted to small gardens, adding a layer of selection to the incredible complexity available among wild coffee plants.
Farmers hand sort for unripe and overripe cherries. Coffee is pulped and wet fermented for 24-36 hours. The fermented coffee is washed in clean water before drying for one to two weeks on cloth drying beds.
As part of the cooperative's mission to give back to its community, it recently renovated buildings at a primary school and outfitted it with new supplies.
