The Bench Maji Wild Forest Coffee is produced by a Farmers Cooperative Union situated in the South-West of Ethiopia. The coffee is prepared with their own processing machines and stores. Key business goals are to improve the lives of individual members, create full traceability, and to provide outstanding coffee.
This wild grown, heirloom coffee bean is produced using an ecological and highly sustainable process. The trees benefit from natural shade and are harvested by hand, by workers educated in quality processing, and cupping, which increases the grade of coffee. The yields are lower than conventional methods of farming, but this is countered by the fact that individual members benefit directly from the production.
