This Ethiopian Lekempti is organic, shade grown, fairly traded, naturally processed, and has a wonderfully exotic taste. It is quite different from the other regions promoted in other coffee companies. It is much smoother and less acidic, but yet retains that typical characteristic of an Ethiopian coffee.
Historically, Ethiopia is known as the birthplace of coffee. In 1960, Ethiopia became a member of the Inter-African Coffee Organization. Our coffee is sourced from Lekempti, also known as Nek'empte, a region located within the state of Wollega, about 6 hours west by car from Addis Ababa. This small farmer's group has joined the Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, which was founded in June, 1999. The co-op now consists of 22,734 smallholder farmer members from all over the region.
These small farms utilize the traditional method of intercropping several agricultural products under the shade of the forest canopy.
