Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Gersi

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Gersi
The Testi Adorsi washing station is located in Yirgacheffe and was built in 2000. It serves around 500 smallholder farmers in the area, who deliver their ripe cherry to the Gersi collection point for processing at this washing station. The coffee here is dried on raised beds for 15–18 days.
Among coffee-producing countries, Ethiopia holds near-legendary status not only because it’s the “birthplace” of Arabica coffee, but also because it is simply unlike every other place in the coffee world. Unlike the vast majority of coffee-growing countries, the plant was not introduced as a cash crop through colonisation. Instead, growing, processing, and drinking coffee is part of the everyday way of life, and has been for centuries, since the trees were discovered growing wild in forests and eventually cultivated for household use and commercial sale.
The genetic diversity of the coffee in Ethiopia is unmatched globally. There is 99% more genetic material in Ethiopia’s coffee than in the entire rest of the world.
