Origin: Ethiopia Sidamo Shantawene
This coffee - which won 7th place (from more than 1,400 entries) in the 2020 Ethiopian Cup of Excellence - is brought to us by Daye Bensa Exports.
In 2006, brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo founded Daye Bensa, a coffee grower and exporter in Ethiopia. Daye Bensa exports coffee from its farm, in the Shantawene Village, as well as from "out-growers" (or smallholders) in three villages: Shantawene, Karamo and Bombe.
Ethiopia Shantawene is named after the village where the majority of the people who work on the farm, many of them women, are from.
Each year Daye Bensa hosts an Out-Growers Day. Nearly 1,000 farmers gather to celebrate their harvests and to receive second payments for their coffee cherry contributions. Daye Bensa additionally rewards the top three farmers from each of the three villages with certificates and cash prizes, recognizing them for consistently delivering high-quality cherries. Looking forward, they hope to work with even more producers — especially women farmers — and to work with Hawassa University, to help students perform research to improve coffee quality.
