    Producers & Cooperative

    Giday Berhe began his career as a coffee merchant in 1993 and in the following years opened wet and dry mills in Jimma to supply the market with quality coffee. In 2000, Giday established Limmu Kossa in the village of Galeh in Jimma, and today the farm employs 500 full-time workers who grow outstanding Ethiopian coffee varieties year-round on 356 hectares of land.

    processing

    Natural: "naturally processed coffee" ie the fully ripe berries are spread evenly on raised beds and turned very regularly to prevent mould growth (especially in the first few days). Dried in the sun for at least 12 days. Natural processing is 10x less water intensive than washed coffee, and thus more ecological!

    Variety: Heirloom (old varieties passed on from generation to generation).
