Ethiopia West Arsi Refisa

  • Introducing Refisa Coffee, a remarkable blend produced at the Refisa Washing Station situated in the enchanting region of Nensebo, within the West
    Arsi zone. Nestled at an elevation ranging from 1800 to 1970 meters above sea level, this exquisite coffee is blessed with rich and fertile red soil. The
    station acts as a hub for 648 diligent farmers who deliver their vibrant red cherries, harvested from Refisa, Roricho, Bulga, and Riripa areas.
    The journey of Refisa Coffee begins with meticulous cherry selection, as each cherry is manually collected and subsequently hand-sorted. The
    predominant cultivars utilised are Welisho and Kurume, renowned for their exceptional quality and flavour profile. The cherries undergo pulping and
    pre-grading using a traditional Agaarde Discpulper, where the removal of skin and fruit pulp takes place before the parchment is graded based on
    density, distinguishing it as either 1st or 2nd quality.
    Following pulping and pre-grading, the cherries embark on a wet fermentation process lasting 48 hours, enhancing their flavour and aroma. Washing
    and grading occur in water-filled channels, where the coffee beans are carefully separated based on density.
    To further refine the beans, they are soaked under clean water for an additional 2 hours, ensuring optimal purity and flavour development. The next
    stage involves the drying process, during which the coffee is meticulously piled in 2-centimeter-high layers. Over a period of 10 days, under the
    gentle caress of the sun's rays, the beans dry naturally, gradually transforming into their delectable form.
    The culmination of this intricate journey is Refisa Coffee, a brew that encapsulates the dedication and expertise of the farmers and craftsmen
    involved. From the nutrient-rich soil to the meticulous processing methods, every step is carefully orchestrated to bring forth a coffee that exudes
    excellence and captures the essence of the Nensebo region.
