Traceability & Sustainability
The origin of the coffee we supply can be traced back to our washing stations (Single Origin). Processing of coffee using coffee cherries from a specific individual farm (Single Farm) can also be arranged.
For the washing process, we use fresh water from rivers (e.g. Daddaye River) running through the areas where our washing stations are located.
As a unique point to mention, on some farms, local trees called “False Bananas” (also called Ethiopian Bananas or Abyssinian Bananas) play the role of shade trees, which are important for the growth of the coffee cherries. The fibre in the stem of the false banana tree is a main ingredient in Qocho (Kocho), Sidama’s traditional food and is a vital source of nutrition for the local people.
