The Producer:

Chelbesa is one of the washing stations of a company called SNAP, which was established in Addis Ababa in 2008 by coffee-passionate entrepreneur Negussie Debela. The company runs three coffee washing and processing stations in Chelelektu, Kochere District of the Gedeo Zone. 


Girum Assefa manages this washing station, and it buys cherries from approximately 470 farmers whose farms are, on average, between 0.5 to 2 hectares in size and sit between 1950 and 2200 masl. As the washing station is located in the middle of the producers, the transportation of the picked cherries is easy to organize.


SNAP coffee offers the farmers partnerships with washing station owners. The washing stations build schools, and SNAP Coffee provides computers and other facilities. They also construct roads to less accessible farming areas.


Located in the Gedeo zone of the Gedeb district, Worka Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee-producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense, layered semi-forest vegetation structure encompassing false banana trees and shade-grown coffee trees, Chelbesa is a great example of the best coffee-growing agroecology.
