The Tore washing station is located in the Borena Zone in southern Ethiopia. The washing station was established in 2009 and has grown almost every year. A total of 1500 producers contribute coffee, and the station employs over 500 more workers. The station provides food for the workers, something rare at coffee washing stations. The hope is that perks like this prevent turnover as washing stations have a hard time retaining employees. The washing station also provides fertilizer to the local producers. When the coffee is processed, the leftover cherries and pulp water are returned to the farmers to use as fertilizer. This is our first year buying from this washing station, but we’re very excited about the coffee. Enjoy!
