This coffee is from a privately owned communal wetmill in Shakiso, Gigessa, a part of Guji. It´s a collection of cherries from variouse smallholders.

This washing station is owned by Faysel Abdosh. It’s a brand new wet mill in Shakiso that opened in 2014. They are already producing 8 containers of washed coffees and 7 containers of naturals. The grades will vary, and we are selecting the grade 1’s that also meets our expectations on the flavor attributes. They generally do lot separation based on 150 bags of parchment, equalt to 100 bags of greens.

About 850 smallholder farmers delivering tiny amounts of cherries daily to the wet miller.

On average farmers are having a farm size of less than 1 hectares. Most coffees are organic by default. Organic compost is common, pruning less common. A farmer can typically have less than 1500 trees pr hectar, and 1 tree is typically producing cherries equal to less than 100 - 200 grams of green coffee.

A mix of local varieties. Such as native coffee of forest origin transferred to family smallholder plots. The varieties are referred to collectively as Ethiopian Heirloom, which is a myriad of local native Typica hybrids and new improved varietals based on the old strains.
