The Mulish washing station is a fairly new processing plant – established in 2014. Apart from its relatively young age, it is managed by our experienced partners of Testi Trading. In the surrounding hills and mountains of Danbi Uddo, a sub-district of the Shakiso Woreda, approximately 850 smallholders own 2 to 5 hectares and deliver their yields to Mulish washing station.
The Mulish washing station is well prepared to process more than 280 tons of green coffee during harvest. Daily operations are smooth because of sufficient materials to process the bulk of the harvest; an Agarde Pulper, flotation tanks, and raised beds. Washed coffees are fermented for 36 to 48 hours and dried for a maximum of 12 days. Naturals are laid to dry for 15 to 18 days.
