Ethiopia Bonde Womans Coffee

Tizita Bizuneh is Israel Degfa’s wife, a very successful producer that we have worked for a long time, owning many washing stations. Apart from the fact that Bonde Kochere is owned by her, the washing station is entirely run by woman managers. It is nearly impossible for Ethiopia to have the women in charge of the washing station and running the operations. The washing station collects cherries from the small farmers in the area.

The fair payment system implemented by Israel in his other washing stations works here as well. The way the payment system in Ethiopia works is that the government fixes the price every harvest. What Israel did was to implement a program with farmers that teach them to harvest better quality coffees (the red cherries) for premium prices. He will always buy the coffee cherries no matter what for a premium compared to governmental price- the better the quality, the bigger the premium. To control this project, he created a registration program for farmers: all of them have their membership number and keep a record of improvements, again to assure an ongoing relationship. He also offers microfinance for farmers wanting to improve the quality of coffees. Farmers are paid in cash on delivery of the coffee and the ones that keep improving quality will receive an after payment, a few weeks later after the coffee is sold. Having this membership does not mean they have to exclusively sell to Israel, or in the case of this Wet Mill to Tizita, it only means they can keep track of each other and, they can access facilities such as schools and healthcare centers that they created.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that.
