We’re honored to partner with Catalyst Trade to bring to you this wonderfully delicate, washed Ethiopian coffee. Catalyst Trade truly has a heart for people and an ear to the ground in Ethiopia. This coffee was processed by their partners at the Mekonissa washing station in the Kellenso Mekonissa village. Mekonissa provides 12 full time jobs and 250 seasonal jobs for the people in the region. The coffee cherries, here, ripen slowly under the shade of bamboo and avocado trees, among others. After the coffee is harvested, smallholder producers bring their ripe cherries to Mekonissa for processing. This organic certified coffee is meticulously processed to highlight sweetness, acidity, and florality.
The Mekonissa washing station operates ethically and responsibly to serve their community and the hardworking people whom they employ. One of many reasons why we’re proud to offer this coffee is for Mekonissa’s C.A.F.E practices certification, which demands regulations such as gender equity training and no child labor. This is our first coffee from Catalyst Trade, and we greatly look forward to working alongside them to bring incredible, ethically sourced Ethiopian coffees to you for years to come.
Please Note: All coffee bean orders are roasted fresh and may take 24-48 hours before shipping.
