Nearly 850 smallholder family farmers from the Werka village deliver freshly picked coffee to Testi’s Nensebo washing station in the Nensebo district, located in the West Arsi zone. Each farmer cultivates an average of 2-5 hectares of certified organic coffee, managing and picking their own crops before transporting them immediately to the Nensebo station.

Upon arrival, the coffee cherries undergo a quality check by floating in water to remove "floaters." The cherries are then spread over raised beds to dry, with constant rotation to ensure even drying. Any underripe cherries are meticulously picked out during this process. The drying period typically lasts 15-18 days, depending on the weather.

The ideal growing conditions and meticulous attention to detail in organic cultivation, harvesting, and processing come together to produce a uniquely beautiful cup. Expect a vibrant flavor with lots of berry notes, especially strawberry, complemented by a pleasant citrus acidity and a soft, creamy body.
