Worka Nenke Station is located in Worka Nenke Kebele or Village, in the southern part of Ethiopia. It is managed by Abreham Dori and is located 18 km from Gedeb. This site consists of 3.5 hectares, sitting at an elevation of 1,983 m.a.s.l. It is dedicated to producing both Washed and Natural coffees, where more than 2,950 farmers contribute every week, mostly with 74110 variety.
This process starts by purchasing the cherries from the local farmers, and once they reach the Worka Nenke site, they are handpicked and floated. They are then left to soak in water for 8 to 12 hours, afterwards de-pulped, and placed to ferment for an additional 48 to 72 hours before washing. After washing, the coffee is laid to dry on African beds for 8 to 12 days. During this phase, the parchment coffee is regularly moved and rotated to ensure a uniform drying process.
The driving force behind this Worka Nenke Coffee lot is their producer, Primrose Coffee, whom beyond their dedication to crafting outstanding coffees, is deeply committed to making a positive impact on the communities involved.
Led by Mr. Abreham Mengiste & Mrs. Meseret Workneh, they have focused on various social responsibility programs, such as schools and bridge construction projects, and providing essential school supplies to students. Primrose Coffee understands the importance of fostering sustainable growth and empowering the farmers who contribute to their success.
In our first year working with Primrose, we already know it won’t be the last!
