Hamasho cherries are processed at Hamasho Washing Station. Hamasho are our highest elevation coffees from Ethiopia, up to 2360 meter above sea level. The beans are very dense, with heavy concentration of the smaller screen sizes (the majority of the coffee screen sizes at 13-14). This reflects slow maturation at higher altitudes. The washed Hamasho is traditionally wet fermented during 36 to 72 hours, and then dried on African beds with clean plastic mesh and sheet for about 9 to 12 days until it reaches around 10% moisture. During high sun, the beds are covered to prevent over drying.
