Ethiopia is known for having some of the best coffees in the world and Banko washing station is know for having the best cherry selection in Ethiopia. Only the ripest cherries are selected and and promptly put on raised african beds. These raised beds help contribute to ideal temperatures and help with air flow. Regular turning of the coffee and the airflow help prevent mold and allow for more favorable drying conditions. When the moisture in the coffee has been reduced between 11% and 12% the coffee gets milled and exported.
Banko Gotiti is a part of the YCFCU (Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union), which promotes sustainable coffee from the co-ops in the Gedeo region of Ethiopia.
Banko Gotti Special Prep
This is a washed processed coffee from various small producers that contribute their cherries to the Banko Gotiti washing station. Banko is in the Gedeb district of the Gedeo Zone, where Yirgacheffe is located. There are about 300 members that contribute a mix of heirloom ethiopian varieties for quality sorting and processing. This particular lot of coffee was a special preparation lot that was performed at the washing station that included a more rigorous sorting of cherries from beginning to end of the process. The coffee was cleaned and depulped, fermented for 48–72 hours before being washed, then given a soak for 8–16 hours before being washed again. It was dried on raised beds for 9–12 days. All of the extra preparation shows in the cup with it’s clean sparkling profile.
