The farm and wet mill is located 2040masl and is planted with various variety selections from the Jimma research centre. Mustefa has a small disk pulper, which he uses for half of his coffee, the other half is dried as a natural. Due to a lack of water in the area and limited space to ferment the coffee, Mustefa ferments the coffee for a short period of time before he moves it to his drying beds, and the result is something like a light honey process. Mustefa has recently registered as an exporter in order to start selling his coffee directly to buyers, which he is now able to do since the changes to regulation in Ethiopia. He has set up a small wet mill where he processes his farm’s and outgrowers’ coffee, which he keeps separate and dries on raised beds near his house. Mustefa’s outgrowers are all neighbours and have between 4 and 10 hectares of land each. He is processing both natural and washed coffee and all of it is dried semi-shaded. We anticipate that Mustefa will have around 600 bags available this year, half washed and half natural.
This following lots comes from Mustefa's neighbours and they are processing them in similar ways, therefore any distinction is mainly due from the subtle differences within each farm, and that contribute greatly into make those coffees more unique.
The washed lots are fermented for eight hours and dried on raised bed for a time-span that range between thirteen to sixteen days.
Natural lots that comes from the neighbours are dried between twenty-four to twenty-seven days.
All of our coffee is roasted by the experts at Full Circle Coffee in Portobello, Dublin.
