A double feature from Raro! We're stoked to have the natural process of this coffee alongside the washed, highlighting similar origin characteristics while offering a totally different cup, the "Paradise City" if we're still using the G'n'R analogy...

Near the town of Raro, nestled between Hambela and Uraga at over 2000 meters above sea level, small holder coffee farmers grow Dega, an Ethiopian heirloom variety, on small 1-2 hectare lots. These farmers take their coffee to the SNAP wet mill for processing. SNAP acts as an exporter as well, and was an early adopter to the changes in the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange which allowed for full trace-ability on small lots along with the opportunity to trade those coffees outside of the government system. "SNAP COFFEE invests heavily in education for their outgrowing farmers (those who sell their cherries to SNAP washing stations) through training in processing and cleaning methods. They also invest in waste recycling systems and aim to have the majority of their coffees certified organic by 2021." (c/o Collaborative Coffee Source)
