The Coffee

Adado Washing Station sits nearby the town of Yirgacheffe. Arabica coffee plants are native to the area. Arabica grew there before anywhere else in the world because of the high altitudes, nutrient-rich soil, adequate rainfall, warm days and cool nights of this region. The washing process is the traditional Ethiopian one. After pulping the cherries, they are fermented for 36-72 hours. Then they are washed again, removing the remaining mucilage. Finally the coffee is dried in beds for up to 12 days.
