Coffee is produced in forest, semi-forest, garden and plantation production methods.
How we Source our Coffee
Ethiopia is the birthplace of Arabica coffee beans, which were discovered over 1000 years ago. Coffee plays an important role in the socio-economy of Ethiopia. There are different and unique flavour profile coffees to be found in Ethiopia.
Ethiopian coffee is usually produced in a sustainable way, with the majority grown as garden coffee. This means that it is planted by farmers close to their houses and is often intercropped with other plants. It’s also common for producers to grow coffee in a semi-forest system, in which natural forest is modified with slashing of weeds and bushes for shade regulation and coffee seedlings are introduced. Only an estimated 5% of coffee production is on a dedicated plantation in Ethiopia.
Vertically Sourced Coffee
Coffee Origin uses a vertically integrated supply chain, which means that the company is involved in every step of its supply chain process. The company believes that interacting directly with farmers ensures that all of its coffee beans will achieve the same quality and flavour standards.
Why you should buy our coffee?
Here at Coffee Origin, vertical coffee sourcing is a philosophy that we live by. We believe in connecting the dots between farmers, coffee users, and advocates by sourcing beautiful coffee that is fully in accordance with more over-arching ideas of sustainability, in both the environment and our own health. It’s a concept where quality goes hand-in-hand with intentional sourcing, partnerships with importers who are focused on long-term relationships, origin commitment, and sustainable sourcing methodologies. We also provide other special blends of natural (sun-dried) and washed coffee, as per customer requirements.
