Background Details

ETHIOPIA GEDEB 3 ORGANIC NATURAL WORKA CHELBESA GRAINPRO is sourced is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Chelbesa coffee mill located in the Gedeb district of the Gedeo Zone, Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region,Ethiopia. Farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Chelbesa coffee station which is owned and operated by Alemu Tukule. Ripe cherries are carefully sorted and then placed on raised drying beds in thin layers. The cherries are turned every 2 to 3 hours in the first few days to avoid over-fermentation and mold growth. Depending on weather, 4 to 6 weeks later the beans are de-hulled and transported in parchment to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
