At stunning heights of 2240 meters above sea-level, you find the Uraga Bisrat washing station in the Uraga Woreda, Guji zone. An open patch of land, surrounded by Bisana and Wanza shade trees, reveals the station that processes one of Uraga’s finest coffees. Bisrat Melaku is the proud owner and founder of the Uraga Bisrat washing station. Besides running the station, he has a small coffee farm that enjoys the cover of the natural Guji canopy. By both farming and processing coffee, Bisrat proves that he is an active coffee entrepreneur. His drive for coffee started years ago while he strolled through the coffee garden of his grandparents.
