Organic Ethiopian Dimtu Tero Farm
Organic Ethiopian Dimtu Tero Farm Filter Roast
Once again, before I talk about the coffee itself I feel that Organic coffee in Ethiopia is more coincidental, rather than being a driving force for existence, which it is for some of our producers.
We always like to have a vibrant, current crop coffee from Ethiopia in the roastery. The reminder that the birthplace of coffee is still amazingly good, if not the very best and truly unique producing country, keeps us and the rest of the world sharp. We fell for this lot as the flavour is not a million miles away from Suke Quto, geographically and also a similar cup profile.
Founder: Getachew Zeleke
Area: Odo Shakiso district, Guji Zone, Sidamo
Villages: Tero, Jelewo Anona, Mancity, Hangadi
Producers: 136 producers collectively with just under 1000 hectares of land.
Roast Profile: Light Filter
(Based on cupping bowls/ Full immersion) Lemon tea meets Earl Grey with dry lime, citrus twist on the finish. This is floral, light, citrusy and refreshing. Filter brewing with good water 55-60g per liter.
Getachew’s aim is to become the main name in quality, traceability, and sustainability for the Guji region. Working closely with the five local producing villages, as partners give both parties incentives to produce and benefit from better, higher-quality coffee.
The smallholders receive premiums on top of the regular cherry price, interest-free loans, improved coffee seedlings, processing equipment, and training – in productivity, quality, and sustainability. Bekele Beriso, a 90-year-old small-holder, explains “We are partners of Getachew. We work hard on the coffee farming side so that the buyer can pay a fair price for the coffee and reward us if they are happy with our coffee.”
