Girma Eshetu is a man of many talents, and the owner of numerous enterprises. He manufactures pulping machines produced locally in Ethiopia, he owns and operates a coffee estate in the Keffa Zone, and a washing station in the Guji Zone.
Kittel's coffee selection is from this station. Sourced from 5 main farmer groups representing 98 households and 292 hectares of coffee land from the surrounding hills of Anfrara, Guji, this lot comes as part of Sucafina’s Lalisaa Project. Lalisaa is a term used to describe something that is flourishing and growing and this is exactly how Sucafina views their partnership with several washing stations in the Guji growing region.
Sucafina Ethiopia provides training on agronomy best practices and helps organize farmers into groups to reduce the need of intermediaries. In addition to the farmer training, Sucafina provides training at the washing and drying stations to ensure the farmers’ hard work is processed perfectly.
THE SUCAFINA FARMGATE INITIATIVE
This coffee is part of Kittel's partnership with Sucafina North America. As part of Sucafina's Farmgate Initiative , Kittel donates 5 ¢ USD for each pound of coffee they buy through them. This allows for an additional payment made directly to farmers' accounts.
