About this Coffee: 

Worka Chelchelie Washing Station is located in the Gedeo Zone and is named for the village (kebele) of Chelchelie. The smallholder farmers frown their coffee on steep mountain slopes at approximately 1,940-1,970 meters above sea level. The coffee is grown in the shade of Cordia, Africana, Acacia, and Ensete trees. The coffee is picked when the cherries are ripe and over-ripe and under-ripe cherries are handpicked and separated before pulping. Coffees are pulped and allowed to ferment naturally for 36-48 hours. The coffee is then washed with clean running water and sun-dried for approximately 18 days or until the desired moisture content of 11.5% is reached
