Washing Station: Koke
Variety: Kurume, Dega, Wolisho
Family-owned Koke washing station, which was built in 2011 has been seeing progressive quality improvements each harvest season. Washing station staff collaborate directly with contributing producers to provide steps towards better coffee. Ally coffee importers who brought us this particular lot has been partnering with Koke for many years, walking alongside them as they grow.
Koke sits on the side of a hill, with coffee grown both above and below. They have been separating their highest-grown, highest-scoring coffees for Ally. 96 neighboring small-holder producers contribute coffee to the washing station, most of whom are multigenerational farmers.
Coffees are depulped and allowed to ferment naturally for 48-72 hours before being washed clean and then sun dried on one of the station’s 106 raised drying beds, until they retain a moisture of 11.5%.
