Cleaning up the green coffee

Cleaning up the green coffee

Dire Dawa is the central place where they clean up the green coffee as it comes in from the Coffee Authority auction house. Normally, this would be a dry mill, but in fact the farmer mills the coffee in Hararghe, and then sells it. But it's in rough condition, with lots of stones, pods, broken beans ... so it requires machine cleaning and then hand sorting.
