Lanoca Coffee Company-Est. 2017

With upfront fruits and clean floral aroma; strawberry lemonade, dried cherry, raspberry, pineapple hard candy, dried mango, orange and a jasmine nose.This coffee is from a private processing site near Bule Hora in Southern Ethiopia's Guji Zone. About 1,500 small farmers in the area sell their cherry at the Gerbicho Rogicha site, where it is graded and dried in whole cherry. Typically, whole cherry is put into soaking tanks where the "floaters" (under ripe coffee) are removed. The coffee is then laid to dry on raised drying beds where it takes around 3 full weeks to dry. During this time workers tend to the drying beds, turning the coffee to facilitate even drying, and hand picking out any defects they see. There are ample natural shade trees in the area, and the altitude of the farms ranges from 1750 to just under 2000 meters. The people in this area are known as Guji Oromo, and coffee farming has been a core part of the culture in the highland's not far from the towns of Yirga Cheffe, Chelelektu and Gedeb (notes from Coffee Shrub).
