The GUDUBA washing station is situated near the Gute Sudo village, in the Wamena hamlet of the Hambela municipality (woreda) of Guji, and is considered a great area for coffee growing due to dense forest-like conditions, providing good shade — and one mostly finds new coffee trees (no trees are any older than 7 years). The trees are grown at very high altitudes, thus making for late cherry-picking, sometimes into January. Coffee tree density is high, yet giving ag good production; cherry quality; and even ripeness. The owner of the Gute Sodu washing station, Eyasu Worasa (53) has been a church leader until he took on this project two years ago.
