Info on the Chelba Washing Station:
Chelba is an independent washing station located in the Gedeo region. Most of the coffee produced is washed. Only 25% its product are processed naturally. This is because water is not an issue faced by the Chelba Coop as the Chelba river sits next to the mill.
This coffee is produces by a collective of 500 farmers that plant coffee in their back yard. In ensuring that the farmer is paid on a premium, the export of this coffee is run by the Trabocca BV (green bean importer based in Amsterdam) under the Operation Cherry Red.
