Gora is the name of the Sub Bekele where the Gora group of farmers are located, the Gora village is part of the bigger bekele called Uddo Hadamma, in Ethiopia bekele represent what we would call a municipality.
The lot takes the name of the village where the twenty five farmers that contributed to the lot live, all of them grow Gibirrina/Serto variety (74110 & 74112) which are locally selected varietals with high disease resistant qualities.
Farmers are growing their coffees under the shade of indigenous trees, mainly in rich loam soil, on average every producer own 3.5 HA of land around the Wosasa sub bekele.
All of these farmers are trained in agronomy and post-harvest practices by the "King of Guji", Ture Waji, whom is also running the drying stations.
What's unique about how these drying stations are managed, including Wosasa, is how the drying beds are handled, each day lot is tracked with a tag and kept separate from the other.
Each tag lists the specific delivery and start date of drying as well as relative Moisture Content Readings for each day, in order to guarantee a slow even drying process to ensure quality and longevity of the coffee.
