This coffee was produced by smallholder producers in the Worka Chelbesa kebele, or village, and was processed at one of SNAP’s wet mills in the kebele operated by Negusse Debela. Negusse operates two sites now in Worka Chelbesa, including this one in the Danche sub-area, and processes Washed, Natural, and unique experimental lots in an effort to continue improving the quality of their final product. This is the first time we stock a honey-processed Ethiopian coffee due to how rarely you see it.

Worka Chelbesa is located in Gedeb woreda, which is the southernmost part of the Gedeo zone. The area is known for its dense semi-forest vegetation, including ensete trees and other shade plants, providing ideal conditions for shade-grown coffee.

Local farmers grow Wolisho and Dega variety coffee, which are landrace varieties from the Yirgacheffe region. Cherries are manually harvested before being taken to the processing station where they are hand-sorted before being processed. The sorted cherries are then pulped and dried on raised beds until reaching their ideal humidity. All coffee is hand sorted a final time after drying before being prepared for export.

This coffee was sourced from SNAP Specialty Coffee. SNAP was established in 2008 by Negusse Debela in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. The company operates three washing stations in the Gedeo zone, and are partnered with additional washing stations in Guji and West Arsi.
