Garse an Ethiopian Natural as we love it!
You can expect in the cup a lot of red fruits like red grape, plum and raspberries. A creamy texture and a lot of sweetness.
Garse station is located at an altitude of 2060 m. It was built in 2011 by DWD company, to process high quality coffee. Cherries are bringing on Garse station by farmers who are living on surrounding villages of Garse, Dobe Toga and Wachile. DWD is working now with 110 small producers. These farmers manage very well coffee growing ; these agricultural practices have been passed down from generation to generation since many years in this region.
Ato Dukale was born near Bensa in the Sidama region, where his parents already had a coffee farm. At the age of 16, he started working in small businesses in the region, such as selling clothes in Dilla or sugar cane.
But his interest soon turned to coffee. He travelled extensively in his home region to collect a few sacks from the various Sidama farmers. Ato Dukale and his wife gave their 8 children the best education possible. In the late 1980s, he built his first washing station in Daye Bensa, which he named "Awraja and his family". Awraja was the name of the department where he lived as a young man, a name used under the Derg but which has since disappeared. It was mostly Ato Dukale's nickname when he was a famous volleyball player and travelled around the country with his team in the colours of his district: Bensa Awraja! Since then, his business has flourished and Dukale Wakayo Dakola now has 16 collection centres in the Sidama and Yirgacheffe regions. The company has been taken over by Ato Dukale's sons, Assafa, Shahsamo and Yamrot, who continue to work with their father to produce high quality coffee.
