Tore is a washing station in the kabele Tore in Gelana Abaya, Yirgacheffe. Gizaw is active at the sites through the whole season, He has great knowledge of every aspect of the site, processing & the local communities surrounding the washing station.
Gizaw & Frehiwot started to actively work on processing, quality control & traceability some years ago waiting for a political shift allowing producers to sell directly to importers & finally in 2017 it was liberalized. They are progressive on quality production at their own sites & they also enter contracts with coffee farmers & local processors to produce coffees in accordance with the method of processing advised by them or us as buyers.
The coffees are separated according to the days and areas of harvest, by the farm or by producer groups as well as by preparation.
