  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    Sourced from among smallholder producers associated with the METAD Agricultural Development PLC, Chelchele owes its distinct complexity and clarity to two unique factors. The meticulous processing of this coffee features a state-of-the-art Penagos demucilager, which washes the coffee with friction and very little water. Paired with the staggering altitudes and mystical terrain surrounding the Worka Kebele in Gedeb make this coffee special. It's needless to say that we're head-over-heels for coffees hailing from this small but mighty community.

    Upon delivery of ripe, heirloom coffee cherries, seeds are pulped and demucilaged before undergoing a 24 soak in concrete tanks. After soaking, these seeds are transferred directly to raised beds for sorting and sun-drying. It’s thanks to the aforementioned Penagos eco pulper that these coffees can boast the intricate florals characteristic of Southern Ethiopian coffees using a fraction of the amount of water through standard processing.
     

Never run out of coffee again.
