Lemon-lime ice cream, juicy apricot & floral bergamot.
Ripe cherries from over 350 farmers in the celebrated Guji zone go into this delicious coffee and the expertise at the Dikitu washing station ensures a consistency and quality that makes the most of these high altitude coffees. A day and a half bumpy drive south of the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, red clay hills rise to over 2000masl. Here, husband and wife team, Gizaw Alemayehu and Frehiwot Mekonnen, manage the Dikitu washing station, purchasing ripe cherries from local small holder farmers and putting them through the washed process before exporting. As farmers themselves, Gizaw and Frehiwot, understand the needs of their producers; extending agronomy support, price premiums and farm inputs along with many other initiatives resulting in a delicious coffee whose production can have real impact.
