Harbegonna  site pulls cherries from nearby communities including Bochessa , Rumudamo ,Charicho , Shamanxanto , Duwancho and Toxogga —close to 9,000 producers are situated in the areas  surrounding the washing station. The situation of the site Producers bring their cherries to be weighed on the characteristic blue scale, logged in the book by Cashier and Industry Manager, Fikire Lema  and floated before being dumped into the cement hopper to begin the journey through the 4-disk Agard pulper and into fermentation tanks and cement washing channels. Following fermentation and washing, the parchment coffee is carried by hand to the drying beds where laborers spread it out to the depth of a fingertip and keep it turning until it is dried and moved to the locked storehouse to await trucking to Addis Ababa and final processing. 

This coffee has a nice floral complexity to it that makes it a coffee to be enjoyed over and over.
