MORE ON HAMBELLA:

“The washing station here at Hambella is managed by one of our favorite partners in terms of smallholder/outgrower programs. The most common method of managing a private washing station in Ethiopia is simply to buy cherry from surrounding farmers, and that's that...(But at Hambella,) smallholders must participate in a comprehensive registration and training, including mapping of each smallholder's farm and training in agronomy and processing.

Records are meticulously kept...(and) through this program farmers benefit from higher prices paid for higher quality cherry, pre-havest financing, and distribution of seedlings and coffee bags for transport. The fact that both the washed and naturals from this station consistently cup high is a testament to the quality management program put in place to excel across all areas of production and traceability.”
