This coffee was produced by smallholder producers living in smaller towns in Ethiopia’s West Arsi zone. Ripe cherries were delivered by 742 producers to the Refisa washing station, which is operated by Negusse Debela.
Local farmers grow locally selected varieties 74110 and 74112, which were developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center in the 1970s. Cherries are manually harvested and delivered for washing. Washed processing begins with pulping the cherries and placing them into fermentation tanks where they are fermented in water for 48–60 hours. The fermented coffee is then washed, and the parchment coffee is dried on the station’s 200 raised beds for 7–10 days until reaching its ideal humidity.
