Aricha washing station is located at 1,925 meters above sea level in Yirgacheffe. Farmers from over 300 small lots deliver cherry grown in the surrounding area to be processed here. The distinct wet and dry seasons create prime conditions for coffee processing, especially Natural lots like this one. Farmers selectively handpick cherry and deliver it to the washing station. At intake, employees hand-sort incoming cherries to remove any under or over ripe or damaged cherries. All accepted cherries are then laid to dry in thin layers on raised beds for approximately 18 days. The station has 280 drying beds. Each bed is marked with a code that makes it simple to keep track of traceability and processing status.
