Our two latest releases in October are from Guji (Kirite aka Disco Marmalade) and Gedeb (Beriti aka Strawberry Sundae) respectively, & have something pretty neat in common - They are both lots from outgrower communities that work with METAD, who have a remarkable history as a company, producer and exporter in Ethiopia.
Eddy is the manager of Greenco, an exporter and facilitator of a group of washing stations in Kayanza and Ngozi provinces - We reached out at the end of July as harvest was wrapping up for 2020 - For those of you who've been with us a while, you know these coffees. Date Juice (washed process) and Blueberry Milkshake (natural process)...
Some of the most talented coffee growers we know are also among the smallest.
At Luna, the coffees we source and roast are the result of picking up the phone, conversations on DMs and sharing that process of our small company buying from talented people.
A modern look at sourcing
Coffee is bought & sold using archaic, colonial systems that are working as designed. This is doing farmers no favours. The goal for our tiny but mighty company is to resist these systems and communicate why and how we’re doing that with you.
