Sinopia takes pride in the introduction of its new vertically integrated farms and washing stations. The newly added developments include 3 vertically integrated farms and 2 new washing stations.
One of our vertical integrated farms lies in the Yirgacheffe, Derbota area one of the most renowned coffees growing regions in the world.
Let us take an introductory look at the Yirgacheffe zone and its coffee bean. The area is officially located under the Gedeo zone within the state of Southern Nations and Nationalities People’s Region. Coffee is sold under the name Yirgacheffe- which is a Woreda (district) within the Gedeo Zone. The road to Yirgacheffe passes through Awassa, Yirga Alem, and Dilla places well-known to green coffee buyers who seek high-quality coffee.
Yirgacheffe is home to the most elusive and complex profiles Ethiopia has to offer. This is the reason why this small zone has carved a profile for itself so well within the global coffee market.
Yirgacheffe coffee is much sought after for its bright point citric acidity. It’s well-bodied, balanced cup of mocha combined with flowery, spicy elements and an array of fruity flavors gives it a layered and complex wheel of taste. Yirgacheffe is renowned for its washed coffees but is gaining reputation with fruity balanced naturals, as well.
Yirgacheffe coffee is chiefly grown by small landholders who own around 0.25 to 2 hectares of land as the name garden production system implies. The smallholder grows his crop under the shade of false banana and other nitrogen crops. The co-operatives, washing, and drying stations are the assembly points where all the cherries are collected for processing. It is within this vicinity, the Derbota area that we toil night and day to produce and supply the chain with one of the finest coffee types in the entire universe. We are more than happy with our industrious farmers, washing station, value, and supply chain industry partners as we gear towards sustainable progress in the lives of those involved in coffee production and supply chain. We wind up our news blog as we foretell coming with our newly added vertically integrated farms and related developments in the next posts.
