The Danse Mormora washing station has been in operation since 2014 and is a well known name in the area. The people who work there have a lot of experience and buy red and ripe cherries from the same families every year. This washing station is very popular with buyers of specialty coffees due to its very high altitude. Danse Mormora means "long river".
After harvesting by hand (three passes are made during the harvesting season), the coffees are immersed in water to eliminate the floating drupes, then they are placed on raised beds where they are turned every 1/2 hour. If the sun is too high, you can cover the structures and continue when it is less hot. After drafting and drying which lasts between 18 and 22 days the dried cherries are placed in plastic bags and stored in place until they go to the decortication station in nearby Haro Lebetu, finally the coffee goes to Addis Ababa to wait boarding.
