Sidamo

Ethiopia is one of the victims of global warming, punishing both people and nature with extensive droughts. Despite those harsh conditions, Sidamo is the most fertile coffee area of Ethiopia.

Almost like being protected by the heavenly forces, it’s also where the false banana tree grows and in its shade the ancient Arabica is cultivated from the Ethiopian coffee heritage. The coffees of this area are like wonderful pearls of taste, arriving to us through the drought.

Duromina

Duromina is a young cooperative, established in 2011 by a group of small scale producers. All the coffee beans are harvested and deshelled by hand and are being soaked for 8 hours in concrete tanks filled with water. After that the coffee is dried on African drying beds woven of plant fibers.

At midday and midnight, the coffee beans are covered with protective nets, to protect the delicate Ethiopian coffee cherry from the mountainous weather changes.

Hambela

75 km beyond Yirgacheffe, deep in the heart of Ethiopia’s best coffee country, is the 200-hectare Hambela Farm. The strict quality control protocols of the METAD cooperative are applied to every phase of the coffee production process, from seedling to farming, harvesting and processing.

They have also adopted a school with more than 400 students in Hambela, providing school uniforms to the students, as well as benches and tables.
