ABOUT DANCHE

Neguesse Debela started operating his first site in Worka Chelbessa in 2017, but quickly expanded in 2019 by buying another washing station a few kilometers away in a small sub-area of Worka Chelbessa called Danche. The two sites execute immaculate washed and natural processed coffees, and are now working to create unique experimental lots in an effort to continue improving the quality of their production.

ABOUT ETHIOPIAN LANDRACE

Ethiopia is widely acknowledged as the geographic origin of coffee, and its production continues to represent about 10% of the country's gross domestic product. DNA testing has confirmed over 60 distinct varieties growing in Ethiopia, making it home to the most coffee biodiversity of any region in the world. Given the tradition of coffee production in Ethiopia and the political interworkings of the Ethiopian coffee trade, it is virtually impossible to get single-variety lots from Ethiopia. This is changing, albeit very slowly. Most Ethiopian coffees are blends of the wide Ethiopian varieties and are therefore referred to simply as 'Ethiopian Landrace.'

The cost of getting a coffee from cherry to beverage varies enormously depending on its place of origin and the location of its consumption. The inclusion of price transparency is a starting point to inform broader conversation around the true costs of production and the sustainability of specialty coffee as a whole.
