Girma Sintayehu is a single-farm lot from Kochere, in the southwest of Ethiopia.

Most Ethiopian coffees take the name of the regional cooperative where they get processed—you may be familiar: Nano Chala, Duromina, or Jabanto, all cooperatives which we’ve shared previously. These coffees represent the work of numerous smallholders, as all the lots of cherries get combined and processed at the collective facilities.

Jabanto farmers business group is a cooperative of 87 farmers who have started highlighting all exceptional lots, sold under that farmer’s name. This is the case of Adebe Cherfo, and this coffee.

This feature mechanism gets them better prices to match the quality and is a good source of dignity and motivation to keep up the good work year after year.

Girma Sintayehu is an excellent sample of Jabanto’s line of production.
