Desta Gola is a farmer whom we have had the pleasure of working with for many years now, and his coffee is one of our very favorites each year. The direct partnership with him means you can trace this purchase directly back to the producer to witness a measurable improvement in quality of life.
By selling directly to Olympia Coffee, Desta Gola was able to earn 25 percent more then he would be selling on the commodity market. His coffee exemplifies what we love about Ethiopian coffee and the industry-leading people we have the honor of working with there as a part of our Fair for All sourcing model.
