📖  Story 

 From Apex Coffee Imports

Danche is a relatively new station established in 2019 in the Chelbesa region of Gedeo, Yirgacheffe. This harvest represents just the third season of coffees from this station and we are very happy to be able to feature them in our 2022 offerings. The Danche mill is owned by Negusse Weldyes who has been working with specialty coffee since 2008. He also owns an exporting company giving him access to feedback that most station owners don’t commonly get directly. His plan for this washing station is to continue to pay top prices for cherries to attract the best farmers in the area to work with him. He is also working on a plan to invest in a health clinic in this area to help the locals access proper health care for themselves and their families.

Processing Info:

Smallholder farmers around the village of Chelbesa deliver pre-sorted, ripe cherries to this washing station. The freshly harvested cherries are then de-pulped and placed into clean, concrete tanks for fermentation, a process that takes up to 72 hours. The coffees are soaked overnight for another 24 hours before it is dried on raised beds for 10 days. Coffees are regularly raked and sorted throughout the drying process to ensure consistent flavour development.
