As coffee roasters and enthusiasts, we're forever thankful to Ethiopia for being the birthplace of coffee. Be it discovery, legend or coincidence, whatever happened back then allows us to enjoy the beautiful taste profile loved by so many today. To celebrate that, we've procured an Ethiopian coffee that can be in our shelves constantly, so you can enjoy cup full of stonefruits and citrus every day.
This coffee was produced by smallholder producers living in Jimma Town in Ethiopia's West Arsi zone. Ripe cherries were delivered by hundreds of producers to the Bikila lbsa Cooperative, which is operated by the Jimma Farmers Multi-purpose Agricultural Cooperatives Union. lt was established to support smallholder farmers in the Jimma Zone of Oromia. The Union provides cooperatives and producer groups with training and technical assistance on sustainable agriculture practices. Coffee trees in Jimma are grown under a natural shade canopy created by other crops like false banana, which also provide a habitat for wildlife. Farmers use only organic fertilizers at the base of their trees, ensuring that coffee cherries are not exposed to harmful chemicals.
