Guji sits at the southern end of the Sidamo coffee growing region, and is part of the official Oromia region. This cherry drying station (and washing station for washed lots) is owned by Mr. Degefa Sema, who has been in the coffee industry for 25 years and now mainly operates a string of washing and hulling/milling stations around Keffa, Guji and Sidamo.
Just under 800 farmers deliver to Degefa's 5 cherry collection centres for this Banko Michicha drying center. In the Kercha region this washing station supports local farmers through a training center it has opened, plus it offers support to local community-based organizations who focus on agriculture.
Cherries are hand sorted for unripes and overripes by the farmers before they go in to production. The classic natural process is executed very carefully, the cherries dry in whole on African raised beds for 14-21 days, depending on the weather. Throughout the drying process, the cherries are turned in every couple of hours to ensure even drying and sorting is done on the entire drying stage.
This classic natural coffee has everything you love in Ethiopian coffee. Lovely citrusy & marmalade sweetness, very juicy cup of coffee. A refreshing coffee that's perfect to enjoy in the hot afternoon.
