Approximately 2500 smallholder farmers from the surrounding area bring their cherries to Dinkalem Ademe’s washing station. There is a sign above the gate that says, “GENALEM GEWYERO”– GOD IS GOOD”--a motto for he and his dynamic wife, Sofiya. Together they are an inspiring couple dedicated to helping their communities in every way.
The outgrowers in the Ginbo district are smallholders, aka “garden farmers.” So called because most of them are producing coffee in the “garden” areas around their homes, and often harvesting cherries from coffee occurring naturally on the land where they live. They also have a robust outgrower’s program that brings economic advantages to their neighbors and friends.
This full natural process coffee is dried on raised beds (see photos) in the traditional Ethiopian manner. Our City Roast brings out guava jam co-mingled with more subtle grape koolaid notes.
