About 500 smallholder farmers deliver cherry to the Torea Washing Station in the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. The washing station was founded in 1997 and has its organic certification; the farmers nearby benefit from fertile red-brown clay soil and heirloom Ethiopian varieties.
Natural processed coffees at the washing station are sorted after being delivered by producers, then laid out on raised beds to dry, for 8–15 days in sunny weather, or 15–20 days when it it overcast.
