ABOUT

Dulli is a forest coffee produced in the Nekemte appellation, in the Wallagga region, characterised by its chocolatey notes. It is named after the Dulli mountain, on whose slopes this natural coffee grows. Farmers work these hard-to-reach plots exclusively by hand. Increasing recognition of this forest coffee will help to preserve its rich agroforestry system, typical of the Anfilloo region.

DULLI

Dulli is the name of a mountain in Wallagga on which farmers cultivate the natural coffee offered here. It has steep slopes, and farming its plots is no mean feat. The plots are on average ten hectares in size and sheltered by a rich tree canopy, particularly conducive to coffee production.
Coffee has been cultivated here for several centuries. It began in the small town near Ashi, just 3 kilometres from Dulli, where there are a large number of ancient wild coffee trees. Population growth and searches for available land then pushed farmers up to higher ground, including in the Dulli mountain. They planted agricultural crops there, and in particular coffee, which grows easily beneath the dense forest.
The diversity of species ensures optimum shade conditions for cherries. There is the Qararo, for example, an endemic tree that can grow to over 40 metres in height and which is an important contributor to this vegetation cover.
Because the plots on the Dulli mountain are hard to reach, the farmers use harvesting techniques based on manual labour and rigorous cherry selection. Belco is helping them to continue this meticulous cultivation method, which is part of an agroforestry system and ensures its preservation.

The history of the producer

The story
of the producer

Dulli is a primary cooperative and part of the Torban Anfilloo Cooperative Union. It was created in 1997, at a time when the local population was growing and the farmers decided to divide their initial cooperative into several branches because it had become too large to manage. Today, the Dulli cooperative counts 368 members, all farmers working plots covering 6 to 15 hectares on the mountain of the same name. The cooperative has its own drying station. It is managed by Fikadu Kitessa with the help of Kana Dibaba.
