Atara Gedecho learned coffee farming from his parents and has been growing coffee for over a decade. With 5 children to support, Atara pivoted to specialty production and joined Gummiso Producing Group to increase his yields and coffee quality. His coffee shines with bright florals, stone fruits, brown sugar and chocolate. On Atara’s 3.725 hectares, coffee is intercropped with enset (a staple crop) and fruit trees to feed his family. The enset and fruit trees also provide shade for the coffee. After selected handpicking, Atara lay cherry to sundry of raised beds. It takes approximately 21 days for cherry to dry. 

While Ethiopia is famous as coffee’s birthplace, today it remains a specialty coffee industry darling for its incredible variety of flavors. While full traceability has been difficult in recent history, new regulations have made direct purchasing possible. We’re partnering directly with farmers to help them produce top quality specialty lots that are now completely traceable, adding value for farmers and roasters, alike.

The exceptional quality of Ethiopian coffee is due to a combination of factors. The genetic diversity of coffee varieties means that we find a diversity of flavor, even between (or within) farms with similar growing conditions and processing. In addition to varieties, processing methods also contribute to end quality. The final key ingredients for excellent coffee in Ethiopia are the producing traditions that have created the genetic diversity, processing infrastructure and great coffee we enjoy today.

Most producers in Ethiopia are smallholders, and the majority continue to cultivate coffee using traditional methods. As a result, most coffee is grown with no chemical fertilizer or pesticide use. Coffee is almost entirely cultivated, harvested and dried using manual systems.

Cupping Notes: Floral aroma with hints of peach, citrus and purple berries. Flavours of blueberry and lemon with a light body and juicy malic acidity. Very clean and bright with a lovely French Earl Grey tea aftertaste. SCA SCORE 86
