CREME BRULEE. LEMON. TEA ROSE.
The Wolichu Wachu washing station was founded in 2017 and serves 4,500 local smallholder producers in and around the town of Haro Wachu, in the Urga district of Guhi in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. The average producer here farms on half a hectare of land, and delivers coffee in cherry form to the washing station, where it is processed as necessary.
Washed lots like this one are sorted in cherry upon delivery, then depulped and fermented underwater for 48–72 hours. The coffee is then washed and given an additional soak for 8–16 hours before being spread on raised beds to dry for an average of 9–12 days. This particular lot is a special prep, meaning that extra care was given to the coffee from start to finish, at the request of our importer. Not only were the cherries vigorously sorted, but also throughout the processing and drying, beans were removed by hand that were seen to be defective, damaged, tainted, or otherwise imperfect.
90 % of the coffee delivered to the factory is Bourbon, and 10 % is Typica.
**Don't Forget! These beans are green right now! We need you to place your order, so we can roast it especially for you and ship FRESH on Thursday . Wait, tell me more…
At Treeline we like to keep it fresh. All coffees ordered are roasted, packaged and shipped on demand each week on Thursdays. Orders must be placed before 5 a.m. PST in order to have your coffee shipped that week, because as much as we like to think we are awesome - we are not awesome enough to predict what you might be ordering.
All orders after this time will ship the following week. If this seems like a SUPER long time to wait for caffeine (don't worry, we get it) please leave us a note and we will do everything in our caffeinated power to sort you out.
Due to our cafes being extra needy, we roast some coffee earlier in the week as well - if your coffee happens to be the same coffee that they are getting, consider yourself a winner-winner-chicken-dinner because we will probably ship earlier then we just told you we would.
