Ethiopia is considered as the cradle of coffee and famous for the fact that it was in the forest in the
Kaa region where Coea Arabica grew wild. Nowadays, the country shows a typical “smallholder” structure.
This means that a high number of farmers with a usually small production yield carry together their cherries
and bring them to central washing stations rather than processing their coffee with own machinery. At the washing stations the beans are carefully sorted before being processed.
Only the fully ripe and red cherries find their way to the pulper in order to ensure a homogenous and consistent quality. The cherry skin and the pulp are now removed from the bean. After that the beans are put into fermentation tanks for 24 – 36 hours depending on weather conditions where any remaining pulp is subsequently stripped by the fermentation. The coffee is then finally washed and graded in washing channels. Now the high humidity content of the beans needs to get reduced down to approx. 12%. This happens under the African sun on so called ‘African beds’ resp. ‘drying tables’ during 10-15 days, where the coffee is carefully raked several times a day.
