  • In the southern region of Ethiopia, specifically in the Gedeb district, thousands of coffee farming families have been cultivating some of the most remarkable coffees in the world. Situated just south of Yirgacheffe in Gedeo, the Gedeb area has been gaining recognition for its exceptional coffee quality. One particular kebele (village) within the Gedeb district, called "Worka-Sakaro," stands out. The name "Worka" carries significance in the specialty coffee world, while "Sakaro" refers to a native tree found in the region. With around 1,276 hectares of land, approximately 679 of those are dedicated to coffee cultivation, demonstrating the integral role coffee plays in the culture and economy of the farmers. Notably, Worka-Sakaro enjoys high-altitude farming areas exceeding 2,100 masl, acknowledged with the Gedio word "Wuri" meaning "high altitude."

    Before 2017, Ethiopian coffee export regulations were restrictive, limiting private washing stations' ability to export their coffees directly. However, with the relaxation of these regulations, Ranger Industry & Trading, PLC has actively operated in the Gedeb region, supporting farmers with productivity and quality improvement, and meticulously processing their harvests for delivery to the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX). Now, these exceptional coffees can be exported with full traceability to the washing stations and farmers, enabling direct partnerships with buyers.

    At the Wuri washing station, the sorting and drying processes are carried out with precision and labor-intensive care. Washed coffees typically dry within 12-15 days, while Naturals require 18-21 days. During the drying process, Naturals are covered during the peak heat to ensure a gentle and consistent drying, regularly turning them on the beds under daylight. The resultant coffees from Wuri exhibit a complexity of flavors that elevate them above other offerings from the region. The washed coffees boast botanical and tropical notes, such as rose, jasmine, and honeydew, while the Naturals encompass a deep, jammy profile featuring blackberry and dark plum flavors. Altogether, the coffees from Worka-Sakaro showcase an extraordinary flavor profile that sets them apart from other offerings.
