      Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi forest vegetation structure encompassing banana trees as well as shade grown coffee trees, Chelbesa is a great example of best coffee growing agro ecology. The town is located in Yirgacheffee, a well-known part of Gedeo that emerged from the privatization of coffee in Ethiopia in 2017, that consistently delivered expressive and flavor intensive profiles. Coffees from Yirgacheffe is considered to be among the best coffee in the world. Coffees from this region grown at roughly 2,000 meters above sea level.

      This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Chelbesa coffee mill located in the Gedeo Zone. The Gedeo Zone is named after the Gedeo people who are indigenous to this area. Small coffee farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Chelbesa mill where the cherries are carefully selected and immediately placed on raised beds carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced to between 11.5 and 12 percent, and then transported to Addis Ababa where the coffee is milled and exported.
