Mustefa Abakeno is a smallholder farmer who owns 18 hectares of land near to Agaro in the Jimma area of Western Ethiopia. The farm and wet mill is located 2040masl and is planted with various variety selections from the Jimma research centre. Mustefa has a small disk pulper, which he uses for half of his coffee, the other half is dried as a natural. Due to a lack of water in the area and limited space to ferment the coffee, Mustefa ferments the coffee for a short period of time before he moves it to his drying beds, and the result is something like a light honey process. Mustefa has recently registered as an exporter in order to start selling his coffee directly to buyers, which he is now able to do since the changes to regulation in Ethiopia. He has set up a small wet mill where he processes his farm’s and outgrowers’ coffee, which he keeps separate and dries on raised beds near his house. Mustefa’s outgrowers are all neighbours and have between 4 and 10 hectares of land each. He is processing both natural and washed coffee and all of it is dried semi-shaded. We anticipate that Mustefa will have around 600 bags available this year, half washed and half natural.With the support of the team we have in Addis we are able to work directly with small producers such as Mustefa. We see a huge opportunity to drive quality uplift through direct relationships like this one, as we are able to work with Mustefa and his outgrowers on cherry selection, drying and farm management, covering all aspects of quality best practises. By working directly we are also able to make the supply chain much more efficient and maximise the amount of money that goes back to the producers.This following lots comes from Mustefas neighbours and they are processing them in similar ways, therefore any distinction is mainly due from the subtle differences within each farm, and that contribute greatly into make those coffees more unique. The washed lots are fermented for eight hours and dried on raised bed for a time-span that range between thirteen to sixteen days.Natural lots that comes from the neighbours are dried between twenty-four to twenty-seven days.Here following you can find the name and lots that are coming from Mustefas neighbours:Bulti A/Simal Lot 1+2 (Washed)Woziir A/Jihad Lot 03 (Washed)Jamila A/Keno Lot 05 (Washed), Lot 31 (Natural)Ziinat Taman Lot 12 (Washed), Lot 7 (Natural)Zumara Nasha Lot 20 & Lot 22 (both Washed)Alowiyyaa Nofoil Lot 24 & Lot 30 (both Washed)Faxuma A/Fita Lot 26 (Washed), Lot 6 (Natural)Zayituna Basiri Lot 34 (Washed)Elias Shiifa Lot 4, Lot 12, Lot 16 & Lot 17 (all Natural)Anbaru Bulti Lot 16 (Washed)S/Mahammandur A/Fita Lot 17 (Washed), Lot 20 (Natural)Daafis A/Oli Lot 3 (Natural)A/Jihad A/Dilibi Lot 14 (Natural)This lot has been chose for the Girl Gotta Run Project to sponsor the scholarship for ten teenagers girl in the area.
