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.

 

The farm/farmer

Located within the famous Sidama coffee-producing region of Ethiopia, the Kontema Station works directly with just over a thousand smallholder producers to mill coffee for export. The owner, Asefa Dukamo, was introduced to coffee at a young age as his parents were cultivating coffee and other garden crops. In his teens, he began to supply neighboring coffee washing stations with cherries purchased from nearby relatives and villagers in addition to his own family’s farm. He realized that there were not many washing stations nearby, and he had to travel great distances to deliver his coffee. Thus began the idea to construct his own washing station to reduce the travel time for coffee producers in his region.
