Qoree Washing Station is located in Gera district, in the well-known coffee-growing region, Djimma. Qoree previously focused on commercial coffee production, but after being purchased by Qaqe Industrial and Trading PLC, it has shifted focus to specialty coffee production.
Farmers selectively handpick cherry, and most deliver their cherry to Qoree washing station. At intake, cherry is floated to remove underripe and then inspected for any damaged cherry. It is pulped on the station’s disc pulper and wet fermented for 18 to 24 hours. After fermentation, parchment is washed in clean water and moved to raised beds to dry. At the beds, workers will pick over-drying parchment to remove any damaged or defective parchment. Drying parchment is turned regularly to ensure even drying. Parchment typically takes about 14 to 18 days to dry.
