This Chelbesa is the second of two sites that exporting company, SNAP Coffee, owns in the area. This specific station gets most of its cherries from the surrounding hills, and farmers often walk for up to two hours to deliver their cherries to the station.
Chelbesa is largest coffee growing area in Gedeb woreda with a total area of 1,240 hectares of coffee farms. The coffee farms with red soil is quite fertile and unique harvest method. The early in the harvest season, farmers were waiting to harvest their cherries, even though red cherries were appearing on their trees. Their reasoning was that God would let them know when was the exact right time to begin harvesting. They also mentioned waiting until all the cherries on the trees were red, sweet and ready to be picked.
Intense with lots of red fruit, tangerine and berries. Long lingering aftertaste with perfumed note like chamomile. Please enjoy!
