About the farm
Adorsi is a privately-owned washing station that is located in the Yirgacheffe woreda (administrative district) in Ethiopia’s Gedeo zone. The washing station is found in the kebele (local village) of Aricha, and is one of twenty owned and managed by Testi Coffee, a family-owned company founded by Mr Faysel A. Yonis.
About the processing
During harvest, ripe cherries from smallholder farmers are delivered to the station where it gets hand sorted for quality. After sorting, the cherries undergo a period of in-cherry fermentation for 12-15 days. Hand-sorting and manual rotation of the cherries on the drying bed occurs every few hours during the drying stage to ensure only the highest quality beans remain for exporting. The resulting coffee is incredibly unique and distinguished for its sweet, clean, and bright flavour profile.
