The Aramo washing station receives coffees from a multitude of smallholders operating in the Banko Okoto region of Yirgacheffe. The altitude of the farms included varies from 1995 to 2020 MASL.

Farming methods in the region are largely traditional. Farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops. This method is common among smallholders because it maximises land use; providing food for their families alongside stimulating opportunities for additional cash income.

In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farms are also organic by default. Farmers typically use very few—if any—fertilizers or pesticides. Most farm work is carried out manually by the farmer and their immediate family.
