About Ethiopia Abiyot Boru Galle Dagaa Grade 1 Washed

Galle Dagaa is a long drive to the west of Shakiso, these highlands, however, are prime for producing great coffee. Strictly producing washed coffee, this is the largest station we have partnered with and can process over 2 million kilograms of coffee cherry annually.

Station owner, Abiyot Boru, is well versed in coffee and has a history of producing both washed and natural speciality grade coffees. He has an eye for quality and enjoys experimenting with the processing techniques, which has proven very successful as he has produced some truly unique cups. Our coffee selection from this site is sourced from the surrounding mountains where we work with five farmer groups, representing 106 households on 116 Hectares of coffee land.

This well-balanced coffee has delicate fruity notes and citrus-like acidity making it a difficult cup not to enjoy.

About Lalisaa Project

Lalisaa is a term used to describe something that is flourishing and growing. Historically, a majority of Ethiopia’s coffee producers have not been able to enjoy a direct relationship with the buyer of their coffee. This lack of transparency and equitable trade structure left most farmers with no incentive or know how to develop their crop, despite having the world’s most diverse and distinct coffee.

Due to recent changes in regulation, even the little guys can directly export their coffee to foreign markets and with Ethiopia’s staggering levels of varietal diversity, we believe that new amazing coffees are just waiting to be discovered. We have partnered with several washing stations and farmers to create truly transparent and sustainable supply chains. Sucafina Ethiopia provide training on agronomy best practices and help organize farmers into groups to wean them off the need of intermediaries in the field so they can deliver directly to the washing or drying stations. In addition to the farmer training we provide training at the washing and drying stations to ensure the farmers’ hard work is processed perfectly.

We have launched a pilot of the Lalisaa Project near Shakiso, Guji, where we have partnered with six coffee mills. This region receives ample rainfall and is marked by steep mountainous terrain. Perfect conditions to support the vast array of coffee found here. Only recently have Guji coffees been distinguished from neighbouring Sidamo and Yirgacheffe producing areas. Due to their immense quality and unique profiles however, they are quickly gaining international recognition.
