This coffee comes from 155 farmers belonging to the Biftu Gudina co-operative in the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia. The co-op was founded in 2012, and one of their first orders of business was to deal with washing station accessibility. Before the co-op was founded, farmers had to carry their cherries 5 miles to the nearest washing station because there were no all-season roads, often bruising the cherries and leading to inconsistent fermentations that led to poor prices. With the help of the Technoserve NGO, the co-op has constructed a wet mill and a gravel road to improve quality of coffee and quality of life.

In the Oromo language of these farmers, Biftu Gudina means “morning sun growth/development”, which says a lot about the impact of this coffee, but also its flavour.

This coffee is light and complex, and tastes like bergamot, meyer lemon, black tea and dates.
