Meet Smallholder producers

This high-elevation coffee comes from Mormora Plantation, 250 hectares of sloping, beautiful land where heirloom coffee varieties including Wolicho and Kurume flourish under shade canopy of native forest. Five shareholders run the multi-site plantation, and Mormora is a pioneering venture. Their aim is to develop the Shakiso area in the Guji zone into a well-known specialty coffee producer.

Mormora also buys ripe cherries from approximately 150 smallholders whose additional holdings total almost 400 hectares and produce a cumulative yield of 320 tons of coffee. Mormora’s separate seedling operation contains more than 500,000 coffee plants of 12 different varieties as they explore growth and production with the aim that all exportable coffee produced at Mormora us specialty grade.

Guji Zone, Ethiopia

Here in the Guji zone of the Oromia region north of SNNPR (Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People’s Region) in the southeast of Ethiopia, the fertile deep red earth seems to welcome coffee cultivation, and from its highland slopes heirloom varietals spring up strong and full-flavored. In fact, Coffee Review awarded a stellar 95 points to a representative Guji coffee.

Named after a tribe of the Oromia people, the Guji zone was created in 2002. In terms of geography, cultural, and cup flavors, these coffees from the Guji zone present a distinctive terroir while maintaining the classic profile of the Oromia region: lush with extravagant dark chocolate notes, jasmine-like flowers, and crisp, sweetly-tart acidity.

Anchorhead Coffee

Sporting a moody, maritime vibe and serving up killer coffee and their own baked goods, Anchorhead Coffee is doing coffee right in Washington state (Duvall, to be exact, with café locations in downtown Seattle and in Issaquah). Launched in 2013, Anchorhead sailed right into the big leagues, winning the 2015 “America’s Best Espresso” competition with their Ethiopian coffee, finaling for a Good Food Award with their Guatemalan roast, and collecting numerous awards at annual Golden Bean competitions.

When long-time audio engineers Mike Steiner and Jake Paulson decided to wind down traveling the world, combining their passion for coffee into a cafe and roastery just made sense. With Mike handling the roasting and sourcing aspects and Jake developing the cafe and marketing side, Anchorhead continues to expand their vision of sourcing expressive, lively coffees, then roasting them in a way that brings out the intrinsic character of each. Yup. They love coffee, cafe culture, and serving up a sweet and balanced cup they're proud to put the Anchorhead Coffee name on. (They also love toys like drones, cameras, dirt bikes and motorcycles).
