Coffee from the Geta Bore Cooperative
The Geta Bore Cooperative was born out of a group of Technoserve funded projects and is currently part of a training project funded by Coffee Circle and the German Government.
As one of the most northerly located cooperatives under the Kata Maduga umbrella, Geta Bore members are dispersed in a highly forested area of Illubabor, namely the Metu Bishari forest. The forest is filled with native varietals, one being the Metu Bishari Selection of 1974/75 including 74110 & 74112 amongst others.
Geta Bore Coffee Processing:
The coffee once picked is delivered to the only central wet mill and processed with an Eco-Pulper. It then undergoes a single wet fermentation over night, skin drying in the shade for 8/12 hours and then a final 12 to 14 day drying stage on African raised beds. Harvest typically takes place between November and Jan/Feb.
