Gedeb District is home to thousands of coffee farming families producing some of the most incredible coffees in the world.
In the Gedio language, the word “Worka” means “gold,” a name associated with the friendly-natured inhabitants of the area since the days of King Haile Selassie. There is also a large native tree found around Gedeb that the locals call “Sakaro,” hence the name of the village “Worka-Sakaro,” where this coffee comes from. More than half of this village’s land is planted with coffee, demonstrating what a critical component our favorite beverage is to the farmers’ culture and economy.
The production process of this particular coffee is precise and labrious. The coffee seeds (aka coffee beans) are dried gently and consistently in the sun over a period of 12-15 days.
As a result, the arduous processing highlights the botanical and tropical complexity of this coffee that we absolutely cannot resist.
