Reko washing station started production in 2001 and is located in Kochere, Yirgacheffe at an altitude of around 1850-2100 meters. During harvest, which normally takes place between late October and mid-January, about 850 farmers bring their red cherries to the washing station. The washed coffees are first washed with water from a nearby river, after which they are pulped by an old Agard pulping-machine. The mucilage is removed by traditional fermentation, which lasts 36-48 hours depending on the weather conditions.The coffee is then dried on raised African beds (over 120 beds are present at the washing station) for 10-12 days.

We roast and ship orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Orders placed after 8am on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be roasted and shipped on the next roast day.  We provide $5.00 flat rate priority mail with USPS for all orders.
