This gorgeous washed Ethiopian coffee is produced by Bedhatu Jibicho. Bedhatu was born and raised in Worka where her farm is also located - essentially this is considered the famous Yirgacheffe region. She started working in coffee in the 1960s when the government gave land to her husband, and takes great pride in the fact that she has managed the farm operations for over 50 years, even before her husband passed away in 1991.
As Bedhatu is now over 80-years-old, her adult children have started to become more involved in continuing her rich tradition of coffee production. The family plans to use the premiums from coffee sales to expand production and start an export company.
