Mormora Coffee Plantation was established in 2000. Located in Oromia’s sourthern Guji Highlands, it has 250 hectares of sloped farm land stretching 2 kilometers in length with an average altitude of 2,100 meters above sea level. Surrounded by canopies of natural rainforest, Mormora Plantation produces all of their estate coffees sustainably with EU/NOP and JAS organic certifications.
There are 3 washing stations connected to the estate including: Chekata, Galle and Wolen. Although apart of the greater Sidamo region(Sidamo Zone A), coffees from the Guji Southern Highlands produce a very unique cup profile. Lots from the Chekata, Galle and Wolena washing stations are very fruity cup with stone fruits, citrus and dark red berries showing throughout..
On the estate, coffees are selected with care and placed on raised African beds without 6-8 hours of picking to ensure proper fermentation and drying. Depending on processes(washed or natural), coffees can stay on drying beds for up to 4 weeks to ensure the optimum flavors have been achieved. In addition to the 250 hectares of estate land, Ture and his team of scouts also purchase red cherries from smallholder farmers surrounding the farm. To date, this includes 150 smallholders with an additional 400 hectares of farm land producing an annual yield of 320 tons of coffee parchment.
