Uraga is the name of the woreda in Guji where this delicious coffee was grown. A woreda is a third-level district in Ethiopia - (sort of like a municipality within a county within a state in the USA) - which is all to say it's a pretty small area. Cherry from Uraga was delivered to the Yabitu station for processing - where it was wet-fermented for 36 hours as part of the washing process. The coffee dried on raised beds for 10 days, during which time it was turned repeatedly to prevent clumping and ensure even moisture content - which translated to more delicious flavors.
Uraga Yabitu #1 has a great mix of flavors at play. Look for an upfront sweetness like simple syrup or powdered sugar - and some pops of lemony acidity throughout. Somewhat surprisingly, this lot exhibits a silky mouthfeel that helps those flavors mingle well and makes each brew a luxurious experience. Coffees from Guji exhibit a wide range of flavors, and Uraga Yabitu #1 is certainly a unique one. Enjoy!
