Our esteemed partner in this endeavour, G&F Coffee, was founded in 1980 but ventured into exporting only in 2013. Currently, G&F operates over ten washing stations strategically located in Yirgacheffe and Guji, with their export processing canter in Addis Ababa.

The Idido washing station, nestled at elevations ranging from 1,960 to 2,090 meters above sea level in Yirgacheffe, receives cherries grown in the surrounding area. The distinct wet and dry seasons create ideal conditions for coffee processing. Farmers painstakingly handpick the cherries and deliver them to the washing station, where a meticulous hand-sorting process removes under-ripe or damaged cherries. The cherries are then pulped using the station's disc pulper and fermented for 72 hours.

After fermentation, the parchment is washed in clean water and transferred to raised drying beds. The beans are evenly distributed on these beds, ensuring consistent turning and coverage to achieve uniform drying. The coffee remains here for 12 to 15 days, reaching the optimal moisture content before undergoing hulling and preparation for export.
