In the local Oromic language, Tebe Burka means “fertlie land” and this small private washing station stands out in quality. Founder Tadesse Edema collects his coffee from 300 smallholders, that form five farmer groups. Each farmer owns approximately 3 hectares of land and cultivates maize trees, false banana, and fruit trees – besides their coffee crop. Tadesse pays the farmers groups in advance when harvest begins. This gives the smallholders enough incentive to harvest quality. Uraga Tome, which you may have heard of or tried coffee from, is another successful washing station set up by Mr. Edema in the region.
The water from the Burka river is used to wash the coffee from Tabe Burka site. Coffee is fermented for 24 – 36 hours. Naturals are dried for 15 – 18 days.
This coffee is intensely sweet and a round and smooth body.
