Genji Challa is a sister washing station to the famous Nano Challa and was established in 2004. This station was born out of a need of more space as the membership grew and volumes of cherry being delivered becoming too much for the capacity of the Nano Challa station alone. This success originates from being part of the Technoserve Coffee Initiative. Technoserve provided technical assistance and training to producer groups, and helps coordinate agronomists and business advisors to help improve coffee quality, assist in the management of debt, reinvestment and the fair distribution of funds to each coop member.
Once producers deliver coffee to the washing station, cherries are floated before being de-pulped using a Penagos Eco Pulper. The coffee is then soaked in clean water in concrete tanks for 8 hours before drying; firstly skin-dried and sorted under shade, before being sun dried for approximately 10 days on raised African drying beds.
