This coffee comes from the Aricha washing station, which is a bit of a celebrity in the coffee world: it traces its origins to the legendary Misty Valley, coffees synonymous with quality throughout the 2000s. Originally operated as Misty Valley, it was sold in 2008 and now operates as Aricha Mill, receiving coffee cherries from 650 small farms throughout the region. Aricha's commitment to quality makes this an outstanding example of Yirgacheffe coffee.
