This exceptional Fully Washed coffee was dry milled and exported by Primrose, PLC. The coffee was grown by smallholder farmers living around the kabele (town) of Mesina, in Oromia Region.
Most contributing farmers own less than a hectare of land, and they grow coffee simply as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other subsistence crops, such as sweet potato, mangos and avocados, but there are no other primary cash crops grown in the region.
At least once a day, the collected coffee cherry is delivered to the mill, where it is floated, and sorted to remove any unripe cherries. The coffee is then prepared and evenly dispersed on raised beds to dry in the open sun for 15-20 days. The dried coffee is then delivered to the dry mill where a machine hulls the exterior dried fruit, and a polisher is utilized to remove the remaining silver skin. The coffee is graded and sorted a final time before being bagged and rested prior to export.
