Flavors of jasmine, gummy candies, and Earl Grey
Desta Gola produced 60 bags of coffee this year from his 5-acre plot outside the village of Wenago. We had the opportunity to purchase his entire production for the year directly and even helped him secure an exporter license outside of his cooperative. By selling directly to Olympia Coffee and exporting it himself, rather than contributing to his Cooperative, he was able to earn 25% more for the same coffee production. Gola’s coffee exempliﬁes what we love about Ethiopian coffee and the industry-leading people that we have the honor of working with there as a part of our Fair for All sourcing model.
