The Benti Nenka site is located in Hambela Wamena region, within Ethiopia's southern Guji Zone. Sorting out imperfect coffee cherry starts on delivery, and extends all the way to the drying tables. Farmers must hand sort their cherry for defects before it is received. The cherry is then floated in tanks of water to catch any underripe coffee before the processing begins. For dry process coffee, the whole cherries are laid to dry on raised beds for 2-3 weeks, during which workers turn the coffee and continue the process of picking out any undesirable coffee cherry. Benti Nenka's beds are built with splits bamboo reeds so they're flat and quite sturdy, then a layer of cloth to allow air to pass through the beds.
Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted to order. This can take 24 - 72 hours after the order has been received and according to the roasting schedule. You will be notified through email when the order has shipped or is ready for local pickup.
