This coffee is grown at an elevation of 1900 – 2100 meters above sea level. It is harvested from November to January. This coffee is sourced from small coffee producers located in the Gedeo Zone of the Yirgacheffe district. The Gedeo Zone is named after the indigenous Gedeo people. The ripe cherries are delivered to the Kebel Aramo mill and undergoes a natural process. The cherries are then dried in the sun on raised drying beds for 12 – 15 days. During the day, the cherries are raked continuously to ensure a consistent drying process. From 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., the cherries are covered to protect them from the hot sun. In the evening, the beds are covered to protect it from the rain fall. The coffee is then transported in parchment to Addis Ababa to be milled and bagged prior to export.
