Ethiopia is a unique country, producing exciting and contrasting coffees, of the type we value highly here at La Cabra. However, it is also often difficult to work in as a coffee buyer. The hold of the state-owned Ethiopian Coffee Exchange (ECX) can often lead to a lack of transparency and traceability, where there is seldom any direct negotiation or communication between roaster and grower. It is for this reason that we are excited to present our first single farm lot from Ethiopia. Elias Migu grows coffee on a small pocket of land, just 8 km west of Yirgacheffe. Elias grows the native Ethiopian varietals Kume, Diga and Wolisho on his 1.9 hectares, at 1903 masl.
