Yirgacheffe Gedeb coffee is produced at the Gedeb Tatatu wet, mill in the Bensa district of Sidama.

The mill, managed by Mr Asegedech Sholie, processes cherries from around 750 local smallholder farmers.

Farmers typically cultivate less than 2 hectares of land, on the high elevated farms range between 1,900 and 2,100 masl.

Ripe cherries are delivered to the wet mill for careful sorting and pulping before fermentation for 36-48 hours, depending on the climatic conditions.

After this point, the parchment coffee is thoroughly washed and graded by bean density before being dried in the sun on raised African beds for 10 – 15 days (until the ideal moisture level reaches 11.5%).

The parchment needs to be raked and turned periodically to ensure a consistent drying process in the daytime. The coffee is then covered during the day between 12 pm and 3 pm to protect it from the hot sun and covered again at night to protect it from rainfall and high moisture.

Once the coffee has dried to the right level, it is transported for dry milling, grading, sorting, handpicking and bagging – ready to be transported to Addis Ababa (the capital city).
