- Producer: Gogugu Washing Station
About the Beans:
Located in the beautiful mountainous landscapes of the highlands of Guji, Uraga is considered as the most elevated coffee areas in Ethiopia with altitude of 2,310 meters.
Gogugu Washing Station is located in the wate Gogugu Village of the Uraga Woreda, the wet mill is run and managed by Kedir Jebril who has through the years specialized processing washed coffee lots in Uraga.
Around 425 farmers delivery their red cherry to this wet mill through picking selectively in the morning and bring them in the afternoon for pulping.
This lot is a fully washed coffee with an approximately 24-48 hours of ferment time that yields a very good clarity of flavor and a bright acidity then soaked for 4 hours before drying on the beds.
About Reuben Hills:
Reuben Hills is a boutique micro roastery based in Surry Hills which has been in operation since January 2012. We roast coffee which is showcased in the café downstairs as well as in other high quality cafes through our wholesale channel.
We travel around the world to producing countries (origin), meeting the farmers, cupping their coffees and selecting beans we’d like to purchase and import so we can provide our customers with coffee that was sourced directly from farmers, celebrating their work and introducing their coffees to the western world.
We only buy select small lots which is the best way for us to reward our producers for doing such a great job and taking care of us with such a great product and allows us to maintain ongoing relationships with our farmers.
On a day to day basis, we are a café which focuses on unique, delicious food and exceptional customer service. Our food is best described as inspired by our coffee origin trips, with a real emphasis on the quality of the coffee and paying tribute to all the hard work it takes to get the coffee in the cup. We strive for this quality to filter down through all aspects of the business.
