Ethiopia - Duromina

Ethiopia - Duromina


Intense bergamot and apricot. Sugar, medium body and a hint of almond in the finish. A real favourite !

Duromina, which means “to improve their lives” in the Afan Oromo language, is a coffee cooperative in southwestern Jimma Zone.

Coffee has grown here for generations but was traditionally processed using the dry, natural method. Farmers paid little attention to quality control.

Despite an ideal climate and altitude for coffee growing, the area’s coffee was synonymous with poor quality. Year after year, farmers received low prices for their coffee, earning little income as a result.

On paper these farmers had it all; very high altitude, rich and fertile soils, Ethiopia's incredibly complex heirloom varietals and good rainfall. 

The missing link was quality control. Now that this has been addressed, the Duromina farmers produce coffees of outstanding quality with scores of 90+ being achieved.
