After sorting through numerous Natural Ethipoian samples, we selected this incredible lot from Kedir Hassan, the owner of the Hambela washing station located in "Dabaye,” a small town more or less in Guji. Kedir Hassan is the brother of Esmael Hassan, who manages another amazing farm and washing station, Kayon Mountain which we also considered bringing in. Our importing partners at Coffee Shrub visited the Hambela station in December 2018 and slept in a pair of military tents overlooking the couple hundred drying tables below. They report that Kedir is a proficient and capable engineer as well as coffee farmer, and built the entire Hambela station in one season. WOW! Of course he did not complete Hambela on his own, and thanks to his long standing connection with the people in this area, he had much needed community support. Hambela sits at 1816 meters above sea level, and coffee is grown as high as 2100 meters. They mostly buy coffee from farmers in the surrounding kebeles of Buliye, Wamana, Borticha, Dari Rogicha and Dabaye, of course. Enjoy!
