Getting product details...

From Rin:

We're back with another Ethiopian coffee, this time Gidey, which has an impressive score of 89 on the cupping table. Typical of this country's coffee, it's a vibrant and floral bean that's beautifully balanced.

Growing happily amongst the native forest are the healthiest and happiest coffee trees you’ll see anywhere in the world. Organic production is widespread in Ethiopia where in many countries this is completely unviable due to pervasive disease. It may be the diversity afforded by the forest growing environment slows the spread of disease. There are many contributing factors to the uniqueness of Ethiopian coffee from the growing systems to the diversity of varieties. The result is a country filled with coffee that is some of the best quality in the world.

Gidey Berhe is the owner of Limu Kossa Agro Industry PLC. Located far in the West of Ethiopia in an area known as Limu Kossa, Gidey farms his coffee on a 350 hectare farm that sits at 1840-2130 meters above sea level. The farm is meticulously maintained, from the trees to the signs dividing the lot sections on the farm. The land was once wild bush and has been thinned slightly to accommodate the coffee but the feeling of quiet solitude pervades amongst the native trees.

The coffee is picked by 400 seasonal workers that can be found singing happily as they go about their work. At the farms collection station, green cherries are sorted out before their bags are weighed for payment. The green cherries are dried as naturals and sold to the local market.
