We’ve been working with our importing and quality control partners, Catalyst Trade, in Ethiopia for the last 6 years, and it has been an epic journey filled with multiple award-winning coffees and a lot of “firsts.”

This rare day lot is sourced fro numerous small Producers in the remote village of Dumerso.  Called a “day lot,” our coffee was picked, sorted, processed and kept isolated from other days pickings in the heart of this year’s harvest.

The resilience of Dumerso:

The Dumerso coffee processing station was built in 2010 and has been operated by two sisters since the beginning.  With racial and ethic tribal tensions at a peak in the regions in B2017, the processing station was looted and destroyed. The Birhanu sisters and the village promptly rebuilt the processing station when tensions died down, and it is now considered to churn out some of the highest quality coffee in all of Ethiopia.
