The Coffee

Mustefa Abakeno is a smallholder with 18 hectares of land near Agaro in the Jimma Zone of Western Ethiopia. In his farm, he has a small disc pulper that he uses to wash-process half of his coffee; the other half is dried as a natural. This lot is a washed coffee but due to the lack of water in the area and limited space to ferment the coffee, Mustefa ferments the pulped coffee for a short period of 8 hours before moving it to his drying beds for 13-16 days. The result is something like a light honey.
