ABOUT Ethiopia Guji Bule Hora Lot N13 Natural
• Coffees grow in small farmers backyards.
• The coffees are known as “Garden coffee” and they are harvested from October-January
• Once lots get combined on washing stations, coffee is dried on African beds under sunlight.
• Lots then get combined and sold through the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX)
• After coffee is bought by Primrose, lots go under further quality control screening
PROJECT ORIGIN ZB WASHING STATION PROJECT
Meseret, a very experienced coffee exporter and Bekena, a local coffee producer, started this joined project in the beginning of 2017 with the goal of gaining more control over Ethiopian coffee quality.
Sasa Sestic, Project Origin founder, helped also design this washing station and shared his expertise on the field with ZB’s team to also create here, a hub for coffee processing experimentation. With the goal of pushing the quality of Ethiopian coffee further this station has very high standards from the moment of picking and sorting, fermenting and especially careful drying.
The washing station is called ZB, short for Zeritu and Banchayehu, the names of the wife and daughter of the co-owner and founder, Bekena. The station is located in Masina town, in the Adola area of Sidamo Guji.
All the workers have been incredibly enthusiastic towards Project Origin’s vision of improving coffee quality, and improving the communities that our coffees come from. They have also welcomed the experimental processes we introduced and the unusual equipment that comes with them. Workers at the washing station also humbled us with their attention to detail for the new things we began requesting for Project Origin’s experimental lots.
