About: Girma Bekele is a motivated coffee producer. He is one of the few in his area who pre-float their coffee cherries ensuring that only the ripest and sweetest ones end up in your final cup. This specific lot is a blend of the Walisho, Dega, and Kurume varieties, selected specifically by Girma for their productivity and superior cup quality. Due to the Ethiopian government changing laws around who can export coffee this is the first year we have been able to buy a fully traceable lot from a small-holder producer. It is very exciting to be able to directly support passionate producers, like Girma, who go above and beyond.
