Nensebo Refisa, Ethiopia
The Refisa washing station, owned by Negusse Weldyes, is located in the western part of the Arsi Administrative Zone. This area, bordering Bale Mountain National Park, used to be designated as a Sidama offering but, with relaxed restrictions for working directly with washing stations, we are
now able to better describe where exactly these coffees originate. This
station receives cherries from both cultivated and wild growing trees in
the Harenna forest near Bale Mountain. This station was constructed
in 2015 and is very remote being that it is located at the end of the road that
runs through this area. Together with our exporter, we paid a premium for
this coffee of with proceeds going towards building a school for local
children in the area as well as for improvements to the station itself.
