Chelchele - Natural
The Chelchele washing station is named for the kebele, or village, where the coffee is harvested. The growers from the surrounding community bring their cherries to this washing station at METAD’s farm in Gedeb, Yirgacheffe for further processing.
This coffee from the Chelchele kebele is grown at an elevation between 1800-2200 meters. It is a natural process, dried on raised beds. An organic coffee, METAD has certified not only its own farms and processing plants but also the farms of those participating in the out-grower’s program.
This is the second year running we have worked with METAD and coffee from Chelchele. Always very floral and complex as a washed, we are now lucky enough to have the natural process as well. Having both processes really helps us get to know Chelchele and see the full potential of this producer group.
