Ethiopia Yirgacheffe 3 Chelba Natural GrainPro is sourced from approximately 700 family owned farms organized around the Chelba mill in the Yirgacheffe Zone of Ethiopia. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the Chelba mill. Coffee is carefully sorted and immediately placed on raised beds and dried over a period of 15 to 20 days. The raised drying beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced to between 11.5 and 12 percent, and then milled and exported.
