About Smallholder producers of Ethiopia
As is almost always the case in Ethiopia, coffee is produced by the efforts of smallholder farmers. This special lot comes from the area surrounding the Chire washing station, where many grow their coffee alongside mango and banana trees.
Ethiopian coffee farmers have been hit hard this past year by inter-tribal conflicts leading to burnt and destroyed washing stations and warehouses in many areas of Oromia as well as the worst frost in almost 70 years. Because of this, crops and therefore livlihoods, may be affected for years to come. Thankfully, the government is helping to rebuild some of the affected stations, and new legislation allowing growers to sell directly to washing stations is helping them obtain better prices for their coffees. In addition, the new president of the country is rallying all Ethiopians.Hope is rising for a brighter and more peaceful future.
About Limu Kossa
One Village Coffee
One Village Coffee was born of an encounter. That may sound a bit dramatic, but when owners Steve and Lois Hackman traveled to Africa and Honduras in the early 2000’s, what they saw captivated their hearts: a community of people working together to better themselves and those around them. “Coffee, which is deeply tied to the earth and has amazing powers to connect people, quickly became a way for us to create our own village.” And in 2007 they did exactly that. First in the Hackman’s basement in small-town Souderton, Pennsylvania, where they roasted coffee on a 5-pound roaster, then in their garage. When they outgrew the garage in 2009, they moved down the road a couple of miles to their current facility.
“Our mission since 2007 has been to connect growers, roasters, and coffee drinkers through our quality coffee and commitment to stewardship. We recognize that One Village Coffee would not exist without the people that drink our coffee, and the people that grow it. We want to honor the farmers and the whole supply chain by roasting the most delicious coffee we can.”
A family business, One Village Coffee’s ten-person team is approachable and humble. Whether they’re helping Honduran farmers build beehives, teaching coffee folk everything from brewing methods to cafe design, or giving back to their local community by providing 100,000 homeless Philadelphians with coffee every year, they create community, one cup at a time.
