This is a super classic washed coffee from eastern Yirgacheffe. Foge is a washing station, but they also have a newly planted farm in the area. There are two communities that deliver coffee to this washing station:
1. Foge with 418 farmers
2. Hafursawaro close to 100 farmers
Next season coffees from these communities, and lots from the farm, will be divided into separate lots. This particular lot of Foge is a blend of coffee from both communities and the farm.

Last year the Nordics began a collaboration with Kanketi, a family run business, from Yirgacheffe, that manages 6 washing stations and a private farm of 85 hectares.
Kanketi Coffee export is managed and run by siblings Tsedenia and Fikadu Abayneh. Tsedenia studied marketing and worked for other companies before she joined Kanketi full time in 2017. She manages administration and customer relations and divides her time between Addis and the family home in Yirgacheffe during the season. She is an aspiring filmmaker, while also being deeply involved in her family's business.
Fikadu Kanketi manages the production and quality control at the stations. He has been involved in the family business for a long time, but only began working full time for the company in 2015.
