The Bishan Wate washing station is located in the renown Hambela district of Guji, Ethiopia. Here, Faysel Abdosh owns and operates multiple washing stations under the umbrella of Testi Coffee. Growing up in West Harar, Faysel started his own exporting company in 2009, working to develop communities within coffee producing regions and creating access to global specialty markets beyond the local market. In communities like Denbi Uddo and Aricha, Testi has built primary schools to ensure children receive education.

Bishan Wate and other washing stations under the Testi umbrella maintain rigorous details of traceability, such as keeping records of producers who deliver cherry, as well as organic certifications. Many washing stations are also beginning to lay the groundwork for anaerobic processing abilities, which has shown results to increase cup quality. This lot from Bishan Wate is depulped within six to eight hours after picking to prevent further unwanted fermentation, and fermented in tanks for 36-48 hours. Afterwards, the coffee is dried on raised beds under parabolic shade.

In the cup, we experience sweet fruit ranging from watermelon to strawberry to Pink Lady apple, with floral and sweet flavors in the cup. We also taste a sweetness somewhere between brown sugar and caramel.
