Ethiopia Aramo

Size

It’s been a couple years, but Aramo is back at Huck! We’ve been looking forward to coffee from the Yirgacheffe Coffee Famers Cooperative Union. This washed coffee is deliciously floral and refreshing, and we’re also looking forward to using Aramo Natural in Phantom Limb and a single farmer natural from the cooperative union this year!

Aramo is one of the 22 cooperatives that make up the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, a longstanding leader in organic farming and sustainable agriculture in the region. While Huck roasts coffees from both private washing stations and cooperatives, we’re always happy to support YCFCU, and incorporate their coffees into our single origin lineup or Phantom Limb whenever we can. Last year at YCFCU was tough, and we weren’t able to buy any of their coffee, largely due to leadership changes at the Union. But with Erkehun Woldegiorgis taking over as managing director, YCFCU seems to be climbing back from its challenges, the coffee is delicious, and we’re excited to support and showcase cooperative-produced coffee in our lineup.

The Aramo Cooperative sits in the kebele (village) of the same name, above the famous Yirgacheffe woreda. Over 2000 farmers deliver cherry to the cooperative, where the coffee is depulped, washed, dried, stored, and sorted under the watchful eye of cooperative manager Negusse Hordfa. In addition to Negusse and cooperative members’ attention, Aramo is one of the highest cooperatives in the region, with farms ranging from 1800-2000+ meters above sea level. Altitude is far from the only factor, but it certainly contributes to the amazing flavors in the cup

We’re tasting ripe yellow peach, assorted florals, sweet tea, and tangerine in this gem from Aramo, and are looking forward to showcasing this coffee on its own for a few months, and using it as the backbone for Phantom Limb for a bit longer. Aramo is the second of several washed Ethiopias we’ll roast up this year, it’s tasty af, and we’re excited that Aramo cooperative and YCFCU are on the come-up again!
