Dambi Uddo is the name of the town where this coffee processing site is located. It's one of a few wet mills that are operated by Guji Highland Farm, a group who manage their own large semi-forest coffee farms around the Guji area, as well as processing sites where they process their farm coffee as well as coffee from outgrowers in the area. This particular site in Dambi Uddo holds the name "Wodessa", which is also the name of the man who started this whole operation. Last year when we bought this coffee, they were only producing naturals at Wodessa. But this year they've installed a new Penagos mill so they can produce washed coffees as well (they're expecting around 8 full containers split between natural and washed). They buy coffee from a few different Kebeles nearby including Dambi Uddo, Hangadhi, Welena, Chaqta, Sewana, Banti Korbo and some from their own farms as well. Wodessa cooked us an incredible goat dinner when we visited last December and he insisted on putting us up for the night as well. Lucky us, as it was sundown and we were still hours away from our final destination!
