Additional Farm Info
Danche is a washing station located in Chelbesa, Gedo. The station buys cherries from 313 farmers who produce high quality coffee thanks to fertile soil and responsible farming methods. The Danche washing station has organic certification.
The farmers allow the cherry to ripen well before they harvest as they know that this creates more sweetness. They also trust their god will let them know the exact right time to begin picking. The farmers here can walk for up to two hours to deliver their cherry to the washing station. Girum Assefa pays careful attention in managing the site and the processing of these coffees.
About this coffee
This coffee, like all the coffees selected by Chicchi by Marigold, is defined as a Specialty Coffee, that is a coffee of the highest quality that is awarded this "title" by expert tasters who evaluate green coffee from a sensorial point of view with a score higher than 80 SCA points.
The cherries of the coffee plant are hand-picked one by one and after harvesting they are processed in different methods to obtain the green seed to be roasted. One of these methods is called "natural". This method involves drying the whole coffee cherries, without pulping. This process gives the drink an intense and pleasant sweetness.
