Gedeb is one of the most coveted growing regions in Ethiopia, and Ranger Industry & Trading owns and operates Wuri, one of the only private washing stations in Worka-Sakaro, located in the heart of the region.
Upon arrival, cherries are carefully hand sorted and floated to separate out less-dense and damaged beans. Then the cherries are placed on raised beds and dried over a period of 18 to 21 days. The cherries are covered during the afternoons to prevent harsh drying in the intense sun.
Ranger Industry also has its own dry mill, which allows for traceability all the way through to the final export stage. Earnings are used to fuel social impact in the communities where coffee is sourced, such as road construction projects that make travel easier, and area school infrastructure projects.
Wuri receives cherries from more than 850 producers who cultivate coffee on just a few acres of land.
