    About Biya Faris :

    Before joining the Bashasha group, Biya sold his coffee as cherry to the Hunda Oli Cooperative, who then processed the coffee. But thanks to recent changes to local coffee trading laws, individual producers are now able to apply for their own export licenses. Biya now processes his own coffee and garners a higher price for the final product.  Since these changes he's built 8 new drying beds and bought new mesh to help protect drying cherry.

    After selective handpicking, cherry is laid to dry on Biya's 18 drying beds. During the harvest, Biya employs 16 people to carefully handpick ripe cherry and 6 people to inspect and maintain the drying beds. The employees working at the drying beds turn drying cherry frequently to ensure even drying. They use this opportunity toremove any unripe, overripe or damage cherry. Many of the methods he uses are organic by default, as agricultural inputs have historically been hard to access. Cherry dries for an average of 15 to 20 days. Then, dried cherry rests in a warehouse on Biva's farm for 30 days before it is transported to the dry mill in Addis Ababa.
