THE COFFE QUEST'S STORY:
Keramo cherries are processed at Keramo Washing Station. Keramo, together with Hamasho are our highest elevation coffees from Ethiopia, with elevations up to 2360 meter above sea level. The beans are very dense, with heavy concentration of the smaller screen sizes (the majority of the coffee screen sizes at 13-14). This reflects slow maturation at higher altitudes.
The washed Keramo is traditionally wet fermented during 36 to 72 hours, and then dried on African beds with clean plastic mesh and sheet, for about 9 to 12 days to around 10% moisture. during high sun. The beds are covered to prevent over drying.
Natural Keramo is made from well selected, ripe cherries. The cherry is floated upon reception to remove any low quality cherry, then dried on African beds for 14 to 18 days. The cherries are locally hulled into unsorted natural beans, and transported to Addis for final sorting afterwards.
Ethiopian farmers provide cherries to local washing stations on a daily basis. The stations functions as a collection point and target farmers geographically. The washing stations are central to post-harvest processing and further development of quality.
