- Roast Profile:
The Aramo washing station receives coffee from various smallholder farmers operating in the Banko Okoto region of Yirgacheffe. The altitude of the farms included in this project varies from 1995 to 2020 MASL.
Farming methods in the region remain largely traditional. Farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families.
In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farms are also organic by default. Farmers typically use very few—if any—fertilizers or pesticides. Most farm work is carried out manually by the farmer's immediate family.
