Ethiopia - Sawana
Coffee cultivation in Guji is a relatively new phenomenon compared to other regions of Ethiopia. The young coffee plants grow in mineral-rich volcanic soils, a conducive environment for Arabica coffee strains.
The Sawana Lot is produced from farmers of Sawana Kebele, all woring with the Dambi Udo farm to process their cherries. Familiy-owned, the farm does not only process cherries from neigbourhood farmers, but also process its own. Very involved in their community, they offer training to the surounding coffee farmers, participate in building school, renovating road infrastructure or bringing water to the remote villages.
