The Testi Adorsi washing station is located in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia and was built in 2000. It serves around 500 smallholder farmers in the area, who deliver their ripe cherry to the Gersi collection point for processing at this washing station. The coffee here is dried on raised beds for 15–18 days. Located in prime coffee land (and less than 5 km from the town of Yirgacheffe), the washing station is in reach of several coffee-growing communities – Aricha, Reko, Gersi, Naga Singage, and Idido.

 The Gersi community lives at the highest altitude in this group – at over 2200 m.a.s.l. That is why the coffee from Gersi is the most flavor-packed from this washing station. It is also the community that picks it's cherries late in the harvest season. Like other coffees in Yirgacheffe, the trees are a mix of regional landraces and other varietals. This higher altitude coffee tends to have more floral notes. Gersi is also the coffee the Testi team believe has the highest potential for higher-end premium lots.
