Nafkot Admasu, an inspiring and dedicated female coffee producer, owns and operates her farm and processing station, contributing to the vibrant coffee landscape of Idido, Yirgacheffe. Her journey is characterized by a deep connection to her land, a commitment to quality, and a vision for empowerment.
Located in Gedicho, Idido, Yirgacheffe, her farm and processing station spans 0.5 hectares and sits at an elevation of 2150 meters. This unique environment serves as the backdrop for cultivating exceptional Heirloom cultivar coffee beans, known for their distinct and nuanced flavors.
During the harvest season, Nafkot employs 35 seasonal workers, along with a core team of 6 permanent employees, who collectively share her dedication to producing high-quality coffee. Her farming practices are rooted in tradition, as the coffee is cultivated under the shade of false banana trees, fostering a sustainable and harmonious ecosystem. The meticulous handpicking of cherries reflects her unwavering commitment to quality, even though the absence of formal organic certification is a pragmatic choice made due to the high costs involved in verification.
Following the harvest, her farm follows a natural dry processing approach, allowing the coffee cherries to sun-dry over a period of 12 to 15 days. The dried cherries are then temporarily stored in a local warehouse on-site before their journey to Addis Ababa for further processing and eventual export. Nafkot’s choice of processing method aligns with the scale of her farm, as she does not operate a washing station.
The coffee’s journey from her farm to global markets is facilitated by the Moplaco dry mill in Gerji, Addis Ababa. This process, followed by transportation via train to Djibouti, ensures that the distinctive flavors resulting from Nafkot’s careful cultivation and processing practices reach consumers around the world.
