Yirgacheffe is a region in southern Ethiopia which is known for successful coffee production due to the nutrient-dense soil and high elevations. It lies in the Gedeo zone and is located in the village or “kebele” of Chelchele. The washing station manages over 360 drying beds for drying natural and washed coffees that are handpicked by local farmers who sort only ripe cherries for best quality. Coffee in this region is grown between 1800-2000 meters above sea level and undergoes natural processing which helps to develop its complex, fruity flavors. The coffee is then dried for approximately 21 days to reach the 11% moisture content before they are prepared and loaded for export. Moisture content measurements are taken constantly to ensure even drying throughout the lot.
