Yes folks, yet another delicate and juicy washed coffee from the famous Sidamo region of Ethiopia. This time the coffee comes from the Chichu (aka Chuchu) washing station, located near the town of Dilla in the Sidamo region. The station itself is owned and managed by Solomon Getu and receives cherry from an estimated 600 contributing farmers. Chichu is located in the Sidama zone, but many of the farmers delivering cherry are located in the neighbouring Southern Nation Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR) zone, which is home to the iconic Yirgacheffe coffees. So is it a Sidama or Yirgacheffe coffee ?
Skin drying tables are used extensively post-washing to remove superficial moisture from the parchment and improve the uniformity of the drying. Workers sort the parchment coffee three different times during the drying process, once on the skin drying tables and twice while turning the coffee on the large beds.
