ABOUT

This coffee, collected in western Ethiopia under the Nekemte appellation, is named after the terracotta coffee maker, the “jebena”, used for generations bythe inhabitantsof Ethiopia’s highlands to make coffee.
The coffee is collected from small farmers and placed on the international market via the Addis Ababa coffee exchange, called the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX).

THE REGION OF Nekemte

This coffee is named after the town of Nekemte, located in the region of Wallagga in western Ethiopia. Situated near the Sudanese border, it is a region characterised by a rich environment where coffee has been cultivated for several centuries. Coffee was consumed first by families, then external demand grew in the late 19th and early 20th centuries which ledto the development of the region’s coffee industry.

Coffees called Nekemte in the Oromo language are also called Lekempti in Amharic (the official language of Ethiopia). They are natural coffees with a fruity and spicy profile. The cherries normally have an elongated shape, hence their local name of “long berry".
The following endemic coffee varieties have been identified in this region by the Jimma research centre: Sende, Haru 1, Challa and Manasibu.
