Our current Ethiopian Natural offering from the 2020 harvest was processed at Sasaba Washing station in the Kercha district of Gugi. Founder and owner Tsegay Hagos Tesfaye works with only the most experienced farmers in the area and pay a premium for quality coffee. These are farmers that have been well-trained and have proven that they consistently produce high-quality coffee. Working alone, it would be harder for these farmers to market and sell their coffee. In the past, they would have sold their freshly picked red cherries directly to private traders in the area at low rates.

Tsegay Hagos knows that the success of the Sasaba mill is closely tied to that of the smallholders. “Sasaba does not grow alone”, he says, adding, “We support our farmers and train them, so they can one day export their own coffee.”

The company has a very close relationship with the farmers who it works with, always ready to lend a helping hand – whether it means transportation for medical emergencies or loans during the lean months of the rainy season.

“We are by their side, whatever happens”, says Tsegay, “and because of that, they are by ours”, he adds. This leads to a positive spiral, with both smallholder and mill benefiting from better coffee and better sales.

In the cup, expect exactly what you want from a top quality fruit dried Ethiopian coffee. A burst of berry aromas and flavors, fruity acidity, syrupy body, and lasting sweet finish.
