SUGARLOAF-Ethiopia Dame Dabaya, Washed Process
Sibu Coffee has been working in the Guji Zone for 20 years, but acquired the Dame Dabaye washing station in 2017. As Sibu Farm stewards the nutrient dense volcanic soil that the Guji region is known for, they also partner closely with nearby coffee farms to produce a high quality coffee. Sibu is also dedicated to reinvest in their community with a focus on education and health.
Coffee producers/farmers selectively handpick ripe cherries before delivering them for processing. The coffee is pulped in a classic pulper and fermented before being washed in clean water. Wet parchment is laid dry on raised drying beds. Workers turn and visually inspect drying parchment frequently and remove and damaged parchment. It takes about 12-14 days for the coffee to fully dry. Once dry, coffee is bagged and rests for 1-2 months before milling and preparation for export.
