GEDEB WORKA CHELCHELIE WASHING STATION
Natural ( Unwashed ) Coffee Processing The arrival cherry is sorted by hand first to separate the less dense cherries. Then the good cherry is taken to raise bed to dry under the sun light. This might take for about 21 days.
When the coffee is dried with cherry, it is milled to remove the husks and stored in the warehouse and transported to the final processing warehouse. It is filled with 60 Kg bag and ship.
Washed Coffee preparation
Red cherry is picked and freshly sorted before pulping. Over-ripe and under-ripe beans are handpicked and separated before processing.
Fresh red cherries are supplied to the washing stations. Coffees are pulped and allowed to ferment naturally. The fermented coffee is washed with clean running water, soaked in clean water and then dried to retain about 11.5% of moisture. Dried parchment coffee is stored in field warehouse until it is transported for further processing to Addis Ababa. The parchment coffee is processed in dry processing warehouse to remove the husks and the clean beans are packaged in label bags (60Kg bags) for export.
