Biftu Gudina Cooperative

Sweet black tea and blackberry, peach and kiwi, sugar.

Biftu Gudina was established in 2012, and is one of the best representations of what 6 years of cooperation between Tecnoserve staff and member farmers can do. The Coop now 150 members, and processes with an eco-pulper, full-immersion soak and raised-bed drying. It's an art and a science over here, resulting in a complex cup. Look for a honeyed, jasmine break with bright tangerine citrus with a winey body and intense clarity.

For us roasters or importers Ethiopia can feel like a dreamscape. The diversity in flavor pr...

This is due to poor outturns, export inefficiencies and the number of middle-men small farmers required to get smallholder coffees to market. In Latin America the average capture is 87%, showing incredibly efficient export processes (13% cost and loss), and ...
Ignorant Impressions Ethiopia 2017 Jake Elster, Crop to Cup Coffee Importers              You are only allowed to be ignorant once, so you better make the most of it. Ignorance is an incredible state to be in for experiencing new people and places. If you don’t know, you don’t have any choice but to take each person and idea as novel, as if it were new. The downside to adulting is that you aren’t often allowed to ...
Western Ethiopia in Four Days Jimma, Keffa, Limu – this is coffee country.

This is not Sidama or Yirgacheffe, this is Ethiopia’s wild west. Lower producing farms are spread out over larger areas, oftentimes overlapping or fully within large swaths of protected forest. Land ownership is an issue here, as estates bring in outsiders but bring roa...
