  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    Sourced from among smallholder producers associated with the METAD Agricultural Development PLC, Chelchele owes its distinct complexity and clarity to not only meticulous processing featuring a state-of-the-art Penagos demucilager; but the staggering altitudes and mystical terroir surrounding the Worka Kebele in Gedeb. It's needless to say, we're pretty 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, seeds are transferred directly to raised beds for sorting and sun-drying. It’s thanks to the Penagos ecopulper that these coffees can boast the intricate florals characteristic of Southern Ethiopian coffees using a mere fraction the amount of water as is standard.
