From Climpson & Sons:

One of our favourite coffees from last year, and recognised in Caffeine Magazine as coffee of the month, we are very happy to have this coffee back and tasting better than we could ever imagine!

Ethiopia is known as the birthplace of coffee. There are more than 1.1 million coffee farmers (smallholders) representing 95% of the production. The varieties are referred to collectively as Ethiopian heirloom, which is a myriad of local native typica hybrids and new improved varietals based on the old strains. The two main growing areas are in the west and south. Most coffees are organic by default.

This coffee is a result of a sustainable technoserve project in the west based on transparency and increased quality production. Technoserve is an NGO supporting the farmers in setting up washing stations and new cooperative structures. This project has revealed a new great range of coffee flavours not found elsewhere. Technoserve’s coffee initiative is a project measuring their success in the value and quality of the coffees produced and the farmers increase in their coffee income. All cooperative members qualify for second payment. This has so far contributed to a significant increase in payment for the local coffee farmers.

Biftu Gudina is a new cooperative established in 2012. They are located in an area becoming known for very flavour intense and spicy coffees with unique attributes. The management is strong and they succeeded on quality production from year one. A lot of the coffees are grown around and above 2000 meters above sea level. They have waste water treatment based on vetiver grass naturally filtrating the water from the production before it goes in to the pits and finally the ground.
