Working in partnership with Addis Exporter, a business with more than 100 years experience in exporting high quality coffee from Ethiopia, this is an incredible naturally processed coffee from a co-operative of smallholders based around the Rocko Mountain in the Haricha Woreda, Yirgacheffe.
These smallholder farmers have hand-picked their cherries and sold them to a local trader who oversees the processing and sorting before selling the beans to the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX) who grade according to SCAA standards. Addis Exporter then purchase the top quality lots from the ECX and select the best of these for their ‘Rocko Mountain Reserve’.
Sales of this coffee support the ‘Girls Gotta Run Foundation’.
GGRF is a non-profit organisation that does some amazing work to help improve the lives of young women in Ethiopia.
