ABOUT

Straight from the Limmu Kossa area near the village of Wolensu, this natural coffee is produced by Genet Seifu. It cultivates on 100 hectares the varieties 74110, 74140 and 74145 under forest cover.
Genet employs 14 full-time employees on its farm and up to 200 during the peak of the harvest.

What is a WOMEN COFFEE?

We decided to support women producers by identifying their coffees with a WOMEN COFFEE logo. Why?
Because women play a vital role in the industry, they have a strong involvement in the farms and represent more than 70% of the labour force in the fields, harvesting, sorting the beans...
However, only 10% of them are entrepreneurs and only 20% are landowners (including joint ownership with their spouses). 
Increasing the income of women producers has a direct and positive impact on the education of children and the comfort of the home.

THE TERROIR OF LIMMU KOSSA

The Limmu Kossa terroir is located in the Oromo region, about 80 km north of the town of Jimma in the appellation of the same name. It is a natural coffee collected in a forest made up of various ancient species. The terroir has a rich soil and environment, which give the coffee its unique characteristics. It is prepared by the Dabessa brothers, two locally born boys who have built their coffee business up over the past ten years and now sell their production worldwide. The name “Limmu” is associated traditionally with the fully-washed coffee produced in the Jimma region, because it was the name of the region’s first washing station. The natural coffees were called “Jimma” coffees. Here we have paired the name Jimma with that of the Limmu Kossa terroir to better identify this natural, certified-organic forest coffee. Coffee production has increased the value of the terroir’s forest areas, and as a result is helping to preserve them. The farming and environmental preservation techniques employed are unique to the region and are another reason why our teams opted for this fruity coffee.
