This special prep lot is made up of coffee from many small farmers from the remote village of Damo in the Sidamo Zone of Southern Ethiopia.  After harvesting their ripe cherries, the farmers bring them to a local processing station owned by Assefa Dukamo.

In previous years, the coffee from Damo would be mixed in with it’s bigger neighboring village called Qonqona.  Thanks to the effort of Assefa and our partners at Catalyst Trade, this year the coffee from Damo was kept separate so we could enjoy the unique flavor profile of their coffee, and it is lighting up our cupping table!
