Mustefa is a smallholder farmer who owns 18 hectares of land  near to Agaro in the Jimma area of Western Ethiopia. The farm and wet  mill is located 2100masl and is planted with various variety selections  from the Jimma research centre. Mustefa has a small disk pulper, which  he uses for half of his coffee, the other half is dried as a natural.  Due to a lack of water in the area and limited space to ferment the  coffee, Mustefa ferments the coffee for a short period of time before he  moves it to his drying beds, and the result is something like a light  honey process. Mustefa has recently registered as an exporter in order  to start selling his coffee directly to buyers, which he is now able to  do since the changes to regulation in Ethiopia. He has set up a small  wet mill where he processes his farm’s and outgrowers’ coffee, which he  keeps separate and dries on raised beds near his house. Mustefa’s  outgrowers are all neighbours and have between 4 and 10 hectares of land  each. He is processing both natural and washed coffee and all of it is  dried semi-shaded. We anticipate that Mustefa will have around 600 bags  available this year, half washed and half natural.
