About the farm
The Dimtu Tero Farm is located in the Tero farmers village in the Odo Shakisso district. Getachew Zeleke, founder of the Dimtu farm, strives to become the leader in quality, traceability and sustainability in the Guji zone. To reach this goal, Getachew works closely together with 136 smallscale coffee farmers in the area. He rewards the smallholders with premiums on top of the regular cherry price, interest-free loans, imported coffee seedlings, processing equipment and training. All farmers in the Tero village make sure their coffee production practices are conducted in an organic, socially responsible and environmentally friendly manner.
About the process
This coffee grows at an exceptional height, one of the highest in the Guji zone. It’s a natural coffee, which is challenging to produce. Whole ripe cherries are hand sorted for unripe and overripe cherries before they go into production. The cherries are fermented for 24 to 36 hours in flotation tanks, after which they are sun dried for 15 to 20 days on African drying beds. As shown in the left picture, the cherries are covered in shade nets to dry slowly, to improve the quality of the coffee. This makes the sweet flavor from the coffee cherries transfer into the seeds, creating a sweet and extra fruity cup.
This Ethiopian coffee is perfectly roasted for filter as well as for espresso.
