About this coffee

The cherries undergo a accurate process to ensure the highest quality coffee beans. Firstly, they are carefully hand-picked and selected. Then, a traditional Agaarde disc pulper is used to remove the skin and pulp from the cherries. The pulped cherries are classified as either 1st or 2nd quality based on their density. Next, the coffee is fermented for 48 hours and washed in channels afterwards. The lower density beans are removed, leaving only the denser and better quality beans, which are separated into higher grade lots. After fermentation, the beans are soaked for 2 hours and then dried in 2cm layers for 10 days. Hand sorting is done for 2-4 hours to ensure only the best beans remain. Once dried, the coffees are packed in jute bags and stored in a local warehouse, segregated by process and grade. Lot sizes can range from 100-300 bags. This careful storage process helps condition the coffee and achieve a uniform moisture content. Typically, the coffees are stored for 1-2 months before being moved. In certain cases, the parchment is also hand sorted in the warehouse.

The washing station

The Benti Nenka washing station is located in the heart of Guji, where a total of 500 farmers deliver red cherries from the surrounding areas. Located about 550 km south of Addis Ababa, the Hambela Wamena woreda is home to a community of smallholder farmers who collectively cultivate 6,000 hectares of coffee. In Guji, the average farm size is three hectares, and farmers grow a variety of heirloom coffees, including wild varieties from the neighboring Harenna Forest. This site emphasizes collaboration with smallholder coffee farmers and vertical integration. The washing station receives cherries from approximately 300 to 500 family farms located at altitudes ranging from 1900 to 2300 meters above sea level. These farmer-owned trees are either inside or around their homes. The cherries are selectively hand-picked by the landowners and their families before being transported to the collection centers. Prior to the start of the harvest, the farmers pay special attention to the preparation of their fields through activities such as weeding, pruning and replacing old trees with new seedlings.
