Description

The Beloya washing station lies in the Kochere District; just north of Chelelektu, and 45km from Dilla, the administrative centre of the Gedeo Zone. The washing station itself has two processing units to ensure a timely washing and drying of the cherry, using water from the local river system. Smallholder farmers in the hills surrounding the washing station will bring their cherry here to be processed, cupped, and sold; the station itself has been around for over twenty years, but has recently been bought and expansion and improvement works are underway.

The coffee from here is grown at high altitudes in iron rich soils with a spread of genetic diversity provided by the heirloom varietals. The coffee farmers use traditional pest control methods that have been in use for many years, and so organic production is commonly found.
