ETHIOPIA Hambela Natural Organic – The bulk of production comes from small, family-owned farms where coffee is cultivated on just a few acres of land. Cherries are carefully hand sorted to remove underripe and damaged beans and then the moisture is carefully reduced to 11% on raised beds designed to gently dry coffee with lots of airflow. Simultaneously, Nura Korate carries out activities that often go unnoticed but are crucial for small producers, including training producers in best organic practices and investing in basic infrastructure needs like road improvements and establishing local warehouses. Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (SCFCU) focuses on establishing a certification process for local cooperatives, creating micro-credit for producers and investing in social programs on a larger scale. Environmental training programs, healthcare initiatives, life insurance, and educational opportunities are just some of the ways SCFCU strives to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families.
