The Kercha station is located and named for the village (kebele) of Kercha where the washing station has 6.5 hectares planted with coffee at an elevation ranging from 1945-1970 meters. This lot from Kercha is a Natural process where ripe cherry deliveries from smallholder contributing producers are sorted by hand. The cherries are taken to raised beds where they dry in the sun for up to 21 days.
The coffee is then transported to Addis Ababa to our processing facility where it is milled, sorted, and prepared for export.
Literally translated as “Land of Springs,” Yirgacheffe has the ideal topography, elevation, and water sources to produce and process exceptional coffees. This region is located inside of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People’s Region (SNNPR) of Ethiopia, which is home to 45 distinct people groups. Coffee farmers in Yirgacheffe are typically multi-generational small-scale landholders, sometimes farming only a few hectares. Most coffees in Yirgacheffe are sold as cherry to centralized washing stations that help further separate flavor profiles.
