The Aricha, Reko, Gersi, and Naga Singage 

There are many intricate details that make everything about coffee fascinating. Each detail is connected to another, forming an intriguing chain that affects the flavor of the bean in diverse ways. One of these details is altitude. As altitude increases, so does the time needed for the cherries to develop and ripen, and therefore, harvest time moves forward as you climb.

This is one of the reasons why the people at the Aricha washing station (Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia) process coffee from its surrounding communities as separate lots. For example, Gersi’s coffee comes in later in the harvest season.
