Sidama, Ethiopia

Near Aleta Wondo in Sidama, Ethiopia, members deliver their ripe cherries to the three washing stations that make up the Homacho Waeno Cooperative. Our coffee buyer was first introduced to the cooperative in 2010, and since then we’ve been able to watch Homacho Waeno give back to its supporting community in great ways. Most recently, road improvements have eased the transport of coffee cherries to the stations, and electricity has been wired to all of the farmer members’ homes – about 5,000 of them! Homacho Waeno is a sweet and supple cup with flavors of berry, caramel, and jasmine.
