The Story


Melkalati is named after a name of a river that runs through the village of Tore Badiya in Abaya county, West Guji Zone. The company was officially established in 2018 and since then it has been operating in different coffee growing areas. So far the company has focus on Guji and Gedeo coffees. The company supplies both washed and natural coffees. Their washed coffee lots are produced at their own coffee washing stations built in Tore Badiya, Worqa and Dari Kojuwa villages. This coffee is processed at Tore Badiya.Smallholder coffee farmers in the respective villages and the surroundings deliver hand- picked coffee cherries directly to the respective coffee processing facilities owned by Melkalti Trading PLC. Once the farmers deliver the coffees, further quality improvement practice is carried out through manual labor to sort out under ripe, overripe and insect/pest damaged cherries. For both processing types, only the well-ripen red cherries remain for further processing activities.
