 ◉Bona M.T Washing Station

This station is a completely new station that starts in 2023. Bona as a region in Sidama, usually follows through very traditional process. Most stations will drive trucks to different cherries collection spots, and purchase cherries no matter the qualities. Then process the cherries at night when they truck back the cherries to the station. Bona M.T. station however, is an exception.

The station purchased only 100% mature cherries and even provide bonus when the cherries are in purple, meaning higher ripeness. Located at a higher altitude, M.T. Station also collected cherries from higher farms, resulting in better cherries form. In addition, the purchase price is way higher than other stations so many farmers who care about qualities are more willing to deliver their cherries to M.T station.

ここは2023年に開業したばかりの、新しいウォッシングステーションです。一般的なウォッシングステーションは トラックを走らせ様々なコーヒーチェリーの集荷場へ行き、品質に関係なくチェリーを買い付けます。しかし、Bona M.T.ステーションはそうではありません。


標高の高い場所に位置するBona M.T.ステーションは、より高所の農家から品質の高いチェリーを集めています。また、買い取り価格も他のステーションよりはるかに高いため、品質にこだわる多くの農家が、より良いチェリーをすすんで提供してしています。
