The process

Processing: First cherries are pre-sorted, which means under and overripe ones, as well as foreign material, are being moved for a more homogenous cherry quality. Then the cherries are depulped mechanically and then enter a fermentation tank. The remaining mucilage which surrounds the parchments breaks down with the help of naturally occurring yeasts and bacterias within 40 - 50 hours. Afterward, the coffee is washed a second time in a slim water funnel which simultaneously separates low from high-density beans by gravity. Then the clean, wet parchment coffee is put on drying beds under shade, where further sorting by hand happens. As the parchment is still wet at this point, it is much easier to detect irregular or insect-damaged beans. After 24 hours the coffee is moved to the another raised drying bed under the sun to be dried to a moisture content of 12% within 7-10 days.

The Kata Muduga Union was founded in 2015. It is an Umbrella organization for Cooperatives in the Jimma Area and provides marketing and administrative services to them. The Union sells and exports the Cooperatives coffees on their behalf. However, Kata Muduga doesn't take position on the coffees and sells them under its own name but rather acts as a sales agent. We decided to work with Kata Muduga because of the great potential of the Limu area but also because of its self-understanding as a transparently working service provider. 90% of the final FOB price is returned to the producer. 5% are linked to actual transport and warehousing costs and 5% cover the operational costs of Kata Muduga.
