Ethiopia – Duromina
Score - 88
A classic profile from a famous region of Ethiopia. We are proud to serve this coffee as it showcases why we fell in love with coffee in the first place. Coffees like this washed process heirloom lot from the Jimma region boast floral notes, fruity notes and a very complex cup which breaks the barrier for new comers to specialty coffee. Simply put, it tastes nothing like coffee.

Duromina means ‘to improve their lives’ in the regional dialect of Afan Oromo.
 A common theme with Ethiopian coffee is undiscovered, this coffee is no exception. The farmers had everything you would need to produce the best coffee but they were completely unaware that this was the case. Rich soil, high altitudes and good rainfall, but without proper guidance and management they couldn’t accomplish their potential, until 2010 when they came together to create the Duromina Co-Operative.

The Coffee initiative – A project established by Technoserve and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – was influential establishing and developing fledgling cooperatives like Duromina. With technical support, business advice and access to finance, the members acquired and installed a wet mill and began processing fully washed coffee for the first time.

Another great example of the realities behind your cup of coffee.
