Farm Info
The Shakiso washing station purchases cherry from 700 farmers averaging just 2 hectares of land each, shared between coffee, enset, and other subsistence crops. After being delivered and hand-sorted, cherries are turned consistently in a single layer on raised beds for as long as three weeks, depending on the temperatures. As is common in Ethiopia’s south, drying beds are typically covered during the hottest afternoon hours, and at night to protect the fragile fruit from settling humidity. The resulting naturals are dense and berry-like, with juicy acids and satisfying textures.
