This exquisite high-altitude Ethiopian coffee is sourced from small coffee producers organized around the Kebel Konga coffee mill located in the Gedeo Zone of the Yirgacheffe district. The Gedeo Zone is named after the Gedeo people who are indigenous to this area. Ripe cherries, indigenous varietals, are delivered to the Kebel Konga mill. The coffee cherries are hand-picked, sorted, then dried in the sun on drying beds for approx. 12-15 days. In the daytime, the cherries need to be raked continuously in order to ensure a consistent drying process. The beds are covered from 12 to 3pm in order to protect the cherries from the hot sun. At night, the beds are carefully covered to protect them from rain fall. The dried cherries are then transported in parchment to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
