REKO WASHING STATION // ETHIOPIA

Regular price $18.00 $0.00

Reko Washing Station was founded by Masreshu Sima and is named after Reko Mountain, which overlooks the area. Early on, Sima had the foresight to partner up with Faysel Yonis of Testi Coffee, a well regarded coffee trading company in the area. The goal was to tap into Testi’s expertise in sorting and grading, and their assistance with agricultural training available to local coffee farmers who bring their cherries to the washing station.  This attention to detail has paid off and Reko has become an example of what is possible to the surrounding  washing stations. This coffee exhibits a typical washed Ethiopian profile with notes of apricot, lavender, and orange zest.
