Bekele Legie is 44 years old and has eight children who are all in school, four of them in elementary school and the other four in high school. He started his coffee farm business at a young age on the land given to him from his father. He has been awarded as a model farmer from his village.
Recently Bekele began exporting coffees directly, taking advantage of the incentives offered to small scale farmers and the relaxing of the export restrictions in Ethiopia.
Altitude: 1800-2000 masl.
This is a natural coffee well produced and dried on African beds on a smaller scale from a single producer. This type of coffee is more common in Ethiopia lately, since the liberalisation of the industry. We are super excited about the concept and the coffees these farmers are able to deliver.
