Please welcome HADESO. Named after the local village and pronounced “Had-ess-o”, this privately owned washing station is located in the Shakisso ‘woreda’ (administrative district) in Ethiopia’s renowned coffee region, Sidamo.
Hadeso produces exceptional washed and natural processed lots. Coffee is delivered daily to the washing station by around 850 small local coffee growers. The majority of these families farm organically on tiny plots of land, which average just 2–5 hectares in size. Coffee is their main cash crop and grows alongside food crops of corn, grain and bananas, under the shade of native Birbira, Wanza, and Acacia trees. The average elevation of the farms in this region is very high – around 1,900–2,050m above sea level – and this, combined with the region's cool temperatures, is ideal for the slow ripening of coffee cherries, leading to denser beans and a sweeter, more complex cup profile.
