About the farmer
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 2040 masl 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 out-growers’ coffee, which he keeps separate and dries on raised beds near his house. 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.
