This fine Yirgacheffe coffee comes from a washing station located near the town of Chelbesa, in Gedeb woreda. The station sits at about 2050 MASL, in a region with pretty much perfect conditions for growing, drying and processing coffee.

Chelbesa is owned and operated by SNAP Coffee Trading, expertly managed by Girum Assefa. During our last visit we observed as under Girum’s watchful eye, the station received and processed cherries from over 460 farmers in the area, delivered by mule or on their backs.

The great proportion of our coffees are mechanically pulped before fermentation, but this release is dried in it’s skin, it’s a so called “naturally” processed coffee. A very different type of fermentation occurs when the seed is surrounded by the fruit up until the time it is prepared for export. Believe us, you’ll notice the difference!

Roasted for filter brewing.

We ship coffee as whole beans by default, if you need your coffee ground, please let us know at the checkout.
