Ethiopia Limu Nigusse Lemma Edeto is sourced from a family owned farm in Meto Gundb, in the Limu region of southwestern Ethiopia. The owner, Lemma Edeto began working in coffee 60 years ago and has passed down his knowledge to his sons, Nigusse and Haile, who operate the farm which their father recovered after it had been confiscated by the Derg regime in the 1970s.
The farm sits at the highest elevation in the region with old growth shade trees, naturally spring-fed streams and native varietals of heirloom coffee that grow organically up to the final export stage. In February 2014, Nigusse and his family were honored to win the African Taste of Harvest competition awarded by the African Fine Coffee Association.
