In many parts of the world, coffee farming is a large-scale operation. In Banko Fuafuate, Ethiopia, independent farmers work small plots of land and bring their harvest to a local washing station. There, workers meticulously process the coffee from ripe cherry to ready-to-export bean. This coffee was laid in traditional raised beds to dry the cherry like a raisin on the bean. Called natural processing because of the lack of interference, this technique gives the Banko Fuafuate flavors of bright berry, stonefruit, and a smooth mouthfeel.
