Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Ethiopia freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.


About the farm/farmer

Garse station is located at an altitude of 2060 m. It was built in 2011 by DWD company, to process high quality coffee. Cherries are brought to Garse station by farmers who are living in the surrounding villages of Garse, Dobe Toga and Wachile. DWD is working now with 110 small producers. These farmers manage coffee growing very well ; these agricultural practices have been passed down from generation to generation since many years in this region.


Ato Dukale was born near Bensa in the Sidama region, where his parents already had a coffee farm. At a very young age, he began working in the region’s small businesses, such as sugar cane. But his interest soon turned to coffee. He traveled extensively in his home region to collect a few sacks from the various Sidama farmers. In the late 1980s, he built his first washing station in Daye Bensa, which he called “Awraja and his family”. Awraja was the name of the department where he lived as a young man, a name used under the Derg but which has since disappeared. It was mostly Ato Dukale’s nickname when he was a famous volleyball player and traveled around the country with his team in the colors of his district: Bensa Awraja!


At this time he has around 16 coffee processing stations in Sidama, Gedeo and West Guji areas. The company has been taken over by Ato Dukale’s sons, who continue to produce quality coffee alongside their father.
