The Worka Chelbessa community in Gedeo has built a pristine reputation for producing extremely high quality coffee, and when computer part importer Negusse Debela wanted to pursue coffee as an endeavor, he first wanted to invest in this area because of that reputation. His export company, SNAP, was formed only in 2017, but has finished construction on their own dry mill which gives them full control of the quality of their exported coffees.
Coffees at the Worka Chelbessa washing station are soaked for 36-48 hours underwater before being transferred to raised beds to dry for 10-14 days. While this is a pretty standard processing workflow, at Worka Chelbessa the fermentation water is changed constantly to prevent off flavors developing and to keep the coffee clean, and the drying coffee is heavily rotated and sorted to ensure even drying and consistent quality.
SNAP’s main focuses are on coffee quality, farmer education, and environmental impact. By establishing an export company with aggressive standards, SNAP is able to ensure that the work that’s being done by farmers and at the washing stations is preserved through transport, delivering the highest quality of green coffee possible to coffee roasters around the world.
This is our fourth time offering coffee from Worka Chelbessa. We’re always blown away by the deep, rich berry sweetness these coffees have, and this year in particular we noticed a soft floral quality evenly matched with a juicy acidity. Partnering with Worka Chelbessa through our import partners and SNAP as the exporter truly gives Ruby the best quality coffee imaginable.
12 oz / 340 g. Orders placed by 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday will roast and ship the next day. Thank you!

Ruby never disappoints and is one of my go to roasters for coffee ordering, as well as recommendations for others
Can't say enough good things about your coffees! The beans are always so easy to work with. They make for easy brewing and very flavorful cups. I'm a huge fan and loyal customer for the future!
I have liked every coffee that I've had from Ruby, and I like how Ruby sources from farms that focus on sustainability.
I love the variety of flavors that are presented from different areas of the world.
I have, for years, received a rotating cast of delicious coffees each month. Each coffee has its own color and profile. I embrace the delicious variety and couldn’t choose a single favorite.
The roast style offers great blends that appeal to all, but also offers exotic single-origin beans directly from specific farms.
Thank you for always providing fantastic coffee. It is so satisfying knowing that each morning I can enjoy a refreshing cup of coffee made by good people who know good people.
