Telila CWS

Telila CWS is a relatively new washing station, with this being only their third year of production. The station is located in Kecho Anderacha, Jimma. The station is owned and operated by Mike Mamo of Addis Exporter. Telila has a strong focus on quality control and experimentation, producing impeccably clean washed lots along with honeys, naturals and anaerobics. Telila’s lots are unique in Ethiopia in two different ways; first, each lot is built exclusively with cherries from the single kebele from which the cherry came. Secondly, the parchment coffee is stored in sealed bags, which is in fact, a first for Ethiopia that required government approval. This innovative step is indicative of the meticulous quality control measures put in place by Mike and his team.


Jimma is located in Southwestern Ethiopia, just north of the world-famous Yirgacheffe region. Jimma is home to the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre (JARC), the organization which has been responsible for much of the work done in Ethiopia to identify and propagate disease resistant varieties across the country. Traditionally, coffee from Jimma has been referred to as Limmu and categorized by the ECX as either Limmu A or Illuababora B, depending on where in the region they originate from. Since Telila is located in Woreda Gera, its coffees would be considered Limmu A.

JARC 74112

74112 is one of six selections that were approved for release in 1974 as part of a CBD-resistance (Coffee Berry Disease) selection program. During the 1970's, researchers from the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre searched the forests in the Illuababora zone for CBD-resistant mother trees. Today 74112 has been widely distributed across most growing regions in the country.


Coffees are de-pulped and then placed in a soaking tank for six hours before being placed on drying tables with mucilage stillin tact. The initial phase of brief fermentation is not traditionally used in honey processing.
