Our Washed Yirgacheffe Grade 2 Kanketi comes from smallholder farmers in the villages of Foggi and Negele Gorbitu in Abaya which borders the Gedeo Zone in Yirgacheffe. Coffee from these villages have a bean structure and cup quality that reflect vigor of their youthful coffee trees.
This coffee was produced by Fikadu Abayneh Kebede whose mill serves approximately 400 smallholder farmers from the villages of Foggi and Negele Gorbitu. Fikadu started working in coffee over 15 years ago, under the supervision of his father; he established the wet mill in Foggi about 10 years ago. Fikadu's wet mill buys freshly harvested coffee cherries from local farmers for processing. The cherries are fermented in tanks for 36 hours before being washed. Afterwards the coffee goes through a natural drying process on raised beds over a period of a week. Post processing, coffees from Fikadu's mill are put up for sale through Kanketi Coffee Export.
