Tariku Mengesha is the sole owner and produced this natural coffee entirely on his farms. The farm is located throughout the Banko Chelchele kebele (neighbourhood) of Gedeb woreda, south of Yirgacheffe and just west of the bulgy border with the vast Oromia region. Tariku applied basic agronomic practices and keep the field free of any weeds, grows pulse crops in his coffee field so as to maintain the fertility of the soil. He also applies pruning practices with technical help from Technoserve (CQI surrogate) and district agricultural experts. He processes the coffee with the help of Tesfaye Roba, who processed this lot as a traditional Natural process, first by soaking the cherries to remove all immature, floaters, overripe and foreign matters and then drying on raised beds for 28 days.
