Located in Gedeo zone of the Gedeb district, Worka Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi forest vegetation structure encompassing false banana trees as well as shade grown coffee trees, Chelbesa is a great example of best coffee growing agro-ecology.
A new wet mill was built in 2019 in a small hamlet called Danche within the Chelbesa Village, with the hope of reaching out to purchasing exclusively red cherries from the nearby farmers in Chelbesa Village. The ambition became a reality after completion of the project. The fermentation tanks of the wet mill were built by ceramic which will help bring clarity in the coffee that they process as well as help fasten the fermentation through keep heat inside the ceramic.
