Sourced through our friends at Apex Coffee Imports. Through their words:
"Getachew is a very experienced producer who is known for his skill in managing high quality, efficient production levels. Around 600 smallholder farmers deliver ripe cherries to this washing station, many of which are from small family plots that include recently planted trees of improved varietals as well as traditional old varieties. Once cherries have been delivered to the washing station, the laborious hand selection of ripe cherries begin. Next, cherries are dried on thin layers of raised bed to ensure consistent fermentation levels. This process requires intense labour and immaculate attention to detail to ensure the flavours are well maintained and stable. The rich soil around this area combined with the processing method contribute to a refined final cup that is focused, sweet and complex."
