Who it comes from: Established in 2000, the Mormora Coffee Plantation is operated by Wodesa Yachisi. The 250 acre farm also purchases coffee from nearby family-owned farms, creating a sense of community, especially during the harvest. Ripe coffee cherries are brought to the washing station, sorted and dried on raised beds for 15-20 days. Wodesa and his team manage processing at each step, ensuring proper air circulation, temperature control, rotation, storage, milling and eventual export.
Why it feels good: Wodesa and the Mormora Coffee Plantation proudly invest in their community, ie working with the local elementary school and helping with the construction of two local roads.
