From Cast Iron Coffee Roasters:

Duromina, which means “to improve their lives” in the Afan Oromo language, is a coffee cooperative in southwestern Jimma Zone.

The Coffee Initiative - a project established by Technoserve and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation - was influential in establishing and developing fledgeling cooperatives like Duromina. With technical support, business advice and access to finance, the members acquired and installed a wet mill and began processing fully washed coffee for the first time. As part of the Coffee Initiative, Falcon acted as guarantor for 47 farming groups, representing 100,000 people, so that they qualified for bank loans which were integral to the project. These improvements helped Duromina produce high-quality coffee and bring new prosperity to the community.

The result is that Duromina is a beautiful, clean balanced washed Ethiopian.
