Ethiopia Yirgacheffe 3 Natural Grainpro is sourced from 650 family owned farms located within the Gedeb District in the Gedeo Zone, Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region, Ethiopia. 650 coffee farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Gutiti washing station. Cherries are 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.
