Bisrat Melaku is the proud owner and founder of the Uraga Bisrat washing station and a multi-generation coffee farmer in Guji. His drive for coffee started years ago in the coffee garden of his grandparents.
At stunning heights of 2150-2350 meters above sea-level, the Uraga Bisrat washing station processes Uraga's finest coffees with water from the local Tebie River. Bisrat ferments his coffee between 36 and 48 hours, depending on the weather. After washing the parchment, he sundries the coffees between 7 and 21 days. Shade nets and cloths protect the parchment from the scorching sun and possible rainy days.
By both farming and processing coffee, Bisrat is an active coffee entrepreneur.
