Mad Lab Coffee was started in the winter of 2015 in a basement in Downtown Los Angeles. Created by Andrew (myself) & my wife Sarah Sinclair with a focus on quality and the neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles.
The Chelelektu washing station was built in 2010 and processes up to 950,000kg of ripe coffee cherries each year from its 363 contributing producers. Since 2014, the washing station has improved its infrastructure and processes coffee with fresh, clean water with a ph of 8.5. Coffees are dried on 134 raised beds in the sun across the washing stations almost 3 hectares of land. There are 12 fermentation tanks for soaking washed coffees, which then take around 18 days to dry.
