The story behind the cup...
Ethiopia, Sawana Kebele, Shakiso Grade 1
This prestigious coffee is produced by the farmers of the Sawana Kebele who live and farm in the town of Shakiso, situated in the heart of the Guji highlands.
Coffee cultivation in Guji is fairly new compared to other areas of the country, and the mineral-rich volcanic soils provide the perfect environment for growing speciality coffee.
The Swana Kebele work with Dambi Udo, a family-owned farm, to process their cherries. Dambu Udo make a great effort to reinvest into the local community; they offer training to coffee farmers in the surrounding areas, as well as support in the building of new schools and bringing water to remote villages.
