You get what you pay for and Negusse Weldyes, the owner of Danche washing station and SNAP coffee, pays a premium in order to curate the best cherries from the local farms. This is only the second season of harvest for the Danche washing station, and it's tasting like they have been doing this for years! Danche is a brand new station in the Chelbesa region of Gedeb in the Gede Zone having just been established in 2019. The Gedeo Zone falls within the region of Yirgacheffe. This harvest represents just the second season of coffees from this station and we are very happy to be able to feature them in our2020 offerings. The Danche mill is owned by Negusse Weldyes who has been working with coffee since 2008. He also owns an exporting company giving him access to feedback that most station owners don’t commonly get directly. His plan for this washing station is to continue to pay top prices for cherries to attract the best farmers in the area to work with him. He also plans to invest in a health clinic in this area to help the locals access proper health care for themselves and their families.
A portion of Danche washing station profits will be used to build a clinic in the area to elevate the local healthcare standards.
