Info: Due to the extremely small size of most Ethiopian farms, it is often logistically impossible to taste the work of one farmer. The estate of Mr. Girma Eshetu allows us to highlight the work of one farmer in the birthplace of coffee. Eshetu’s farm is in the heart of Keffa Zone, northwest of more famous buying zones of Gedeo and Guji.

The majority of coffees in Ethiopia are heirloom varietals. These are old cultivars maintained by small communities, often isolated for generations. The proliferation of these varietals means that Ethiopian coffee has greater genetic diversity, which increases cup complexity and resistance to disease. The Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC) isolated and adapted 37 of these heirlooms for their resistance to Coffee Berry Disease, a common pest. Girma Eshetu uses two of these JARC cultivars (known unpoetically as “74110” and “74112”).

 

All coffee is roasted to order every Monday and shipped the following day through USPS priority mail unless otherwise specified.
