It was built in 2011 by DWD company, to process high quality coffee. Cherries are brought to the Garse station by farmers who are living on surrounding villages of Garse, Dobe Toga and Wachile. DWD is now working with 110 small producers. These farmers manage very well in growing coffee ; these agricultural practices have been passed down from generation to generation since many years in this region.
OF THE PRODUCER
Mr Dukale was born in Bensa area of Sidama region from a coffee farming parents. At early age he was a sugarcane trader, shifted to boutique, and started collecting coffee from surrounding villages. In late 1980s he opened the first processing station of ‘’Awraja and his Families’’ in Daye Bensa. Awraja was his nick name literally meaning ‘’zone’’ by the time, as he was famous volley ball player representing his administrative area called Bensa Awraja/Zone of Sidama Province during the Derg Regime.

Subtle yet present, a nice morale boost
Amazing coffee, brewed using V60. Velvety mouthfeel, sweet start followed by a fresh blood orange & zeste aftertaste.
