This coffee comes from around the town of Shakiso, Jemjem sub-zone, Sidamo, approx. 100km SW of Yirgacheffe and 70km W of Hagere Maryam, Sidamo province.

The ripe cherries delivered to mill, where cherries are graded and then placed onto raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2-3 hours in the first few days, to avoid over-fermentation and mould growth. 4-6 weeks later, depending on weather and temperature, the beans are de-hulled. The beans are then transported to Addis in parchment, then milled prior to shipping.

There are appoximately 750 farmers contributing to the Abyot Boru washin station, with the local area recieving on average 2000 mm rainfall per year, with 8 months of the year being rainy and 3-4 months dry. The temperature ranges from 18C-26C.
