World class coffee from Ethiopia's Agaro Region
Biftu Gudina Cooperative operates in a remote pocket of the Agaro Region in Western Ethiopia. There are no all-season roads, so as recently as 2012 farmers would walk their cherries over 5 miles to the nearest town, Beshesha. On the way, cherry would bruise, break and over-ferment resulting in poor prices. When the Coop was founded in '12 it immediately built a wet-mill and constructed a gravel road connecting the mill to Beshesha - with assistance from Technoserve.
Today 155 members within a 2.5 mile radius deliver cherry to their own washing station. Meticulous processing leads to a floral, bright, honeyed cup that shines as an example of world-class coffee from Ethiopia’s western frontier. Perhaps it is appropriate that Biftu in the Oromo language means ‘morning sun’ and Gudina means ‘growth/development’. Whether we are talking about the cup or the community we would agree that "bright development" comes to mind.
