Located in Gedeo zone of the Gedeb district. Worka Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi forest vegetation structure encompassing false banana trees as well as shade grown coffee trees, Chelbesa is a great example of best coffee growing agroecology. SNAP Specialty Coffee built their new wet mill in 2019 in a small hamlet called Danche within the Chelbesa Village with the hope of reaching out to purchasing exclusively red cherries from the nearby farmers in Chelbesa Village. Their ambition became a reality after completion of the project. The fermentation tanks of the wet mill were built with ceramic which will help bring clarity in the coffee that they process as well as help fasten the fermentation through keeping heat inside the ceramic.This lots it has been put together with the production of 495 smallholders farmers delivering their cherries to the mill, in the area the most common type of soil is red brown, a particularly fertile type, rich in iron and with high acidity content.This particular lot has been processed as a traditional natural from the cherry deliveries that constitute the second part of the harvest.Cherries are received and sorted with the help of a series of floatation tanks that separates all floaters and immature cherries. During the process of floatation the cherry gets cleaned then placed on drying beds for a period within 28 to 35 days.
