Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level. The average producer here delivers their cherry to the washing station, where it is blended with other producers' deliveries and processed as necessary. The Natural coffees are dried on raised beds that are 25 meters long. Drying takes 15–20 days, weather depending.
