How Gizaw, owner of the Worka washing station, became a coffee processor Coffee farming is a family heritage in Yirgacheffe. Generations of Gedeo families pass on the trade of growing quality coffee. Gizaw Alemayehu Yirdaw, a Gedeo processor and the founder of the Worka washing station, inherited the passion and drive of his father, Alemayehu.

Alemayehu, Gizaw’s father, owned a plot in the Gedeo highlands. The Yirdaw family enjoyed an income from farming coffee until the Derg regime came to power. The Derg nationalized farms throughout the country, including the farm of the Yirdaw family.

Alemayehu saw no future in growing coffee under the Derg. Instead, he shifted his focus to coffee processing. His decision turned out to be pivotal for the success of the Yirdaw family. During and after the Derg government, Alemayehu attracted customers who paid him handsomely for his quality coffees. Alemayehu used the earnings to improve his processing facilities and the quality of coffees.

Gizaw was born after his father’s farming days were over. Instead of seeing coffee picked first-hand, the young Gizaw experienced how coffee was processed. “So the coffee processing-side of business is all I know since childhood,” Gizaw says. He finished high school and then returned to his father’s station to work alongside his sisters and brothers
