About the farm:
Women owned and run, the smiling face belongs to the indefatigable Asnakech Thomas, Ethiopian coffee's only miller/producer/exporter, who brings to life the Ethiopia Sidamo Amaro Gayo, a natural-process, sun-dried, organic offering which proundly reflects its terroir. She insists that everything be done right, from harvesting and sorting only ripe cherries, using a water-saving eco-pulper down to assuring that the high premiums paid for the green beans find their way back into the community of Amaro. We are calling this a "Women's coffee project" in light of the fact that, according to Asnakech, "almost 80% of the people who pick my coffee are women. I want to encourage them." The intense berry, exotic fruit and honey-sweet notes go hand in hand with the extravagant body and consistency of this coffee This coffee excites us because it is milled by one the most influential figures in Ethiopian coffee today.
