Many of the world’s most sought-after coffees pass through the famed Refisa washing station, located in Sidamo, in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. The sunshine, high altitude, and coffee plants traced back to wild, forest-found varieties lead to a final cup that’s bold, balanced, and completely unique to this region.
Refisa Washing Station purchases from a total of 593 farmers delivering red cherry from a collection of smallholder farmers spanning 5,000 hectares of coffee. The average farm size in Nensebo is two hectares and contains a mix of local coffee varieties, including wild varietals originating from the neighboring forests. Nensebo is a new coffee growing area, categorized as Sidama D on the ECX coffee map.
