  • Info

    The Ambela washing station provides an income for up to 6000 smallholders of the Binitu Ambela district, who produce coffee at altitudes up to 2000 masl.

    In November, farmers begin handpicking the ripest cherries and deliver them to Ambela washing station. The cherries are washed with river water and fermented for 36-48 hours in one of the 14 fermentation tanks. The washed coffee is dried on raised beds for 10 days and laid on drying tables for a further 21 days.

    Binitu Ambela is located in the Guji zone which was created in 2002 and named after a tribe of the Oromia people. While coffee is the main source of income for the farmers, crops such as maize and false (Ethiopian) bananas sustain the smallholders livelihood during the off-season.
