This lovely Ethiopian has come by way of Asefa Dukamo, who manages the Bombe processing station. It is not the first time we've had a coffee from the Bombe washing station and it will definitely not be the last!
Asefa, his family and producers have for years worked towards more traceability of coffees through going from regional lots to smallholder and village lots as well as individual washing stations.
Asefa got a certification that insured that the producers received a guaranteed minimum price which was higher then the average as a starting earning and additional payout with delivery of a high quality cup and the total sales of the harvest.
In 2019 Esther competed with a coffee from Shantawene as she was very excited about a system that drives higher quality and traceability through rewarding results.
