best and original coffee beans from limmu woreda
Our traditional approach has been refined over the years:
- We select the red cherries and avoid the ripe ones for a well prepared sun-dried coffee
- The picked cherries are spread on beds and left to dry for 9 to 11 days with morning and afternoon sun at a moisture level between 11.5% and 12%.
- The coffee is then washed and converted into pulp using a natural fermentation process over 72 hours to remove the mucilage.
- Finally the pulped coffee is exposed to the natural sun and stored in a dry warehouse free from contamination.
There are many factors that contribute to the quality of coffee, mainly man and nature. Natural phenomenon include altitude, duration and severity of rainfall, type of soil, pH, genetic origin, location of producing area, chemicals and pesticides, harvesting methods and timing, packing and so forth. Supervision of quality coffee begins with the coffee seedlings and ends when the coffee is shipped out to the international markets. We are still pushing the best out to produce quality non-chemical organic coffee to the world’s market
Coffee seeds are generally planted in large beds in shaded nurseries. The seedlings will be watered frequently and shaded from bright sunlight until they are hearty enough to be permanently planted. Planting often takes place during the wet season, so that the soil remains moist while the roots become firmly established.
