We bought this lot of Gora Kone through the Operation Cherry Red programme and auction platform set up by Trabocca. Trabocca have been instrumental in developing the structures for traceable, great-tasting and sustainable coffee trading in Ethiopia. The Operation Cherry Red auction showcases some of the amazing coffees Ethiopia has to offer using the newly created regulations that permit small-holder farmers to sell their coffee directly. This is a fundamental development in coffee in Ethiopia and we are delighted to be bringing in four lots from the auction. Mirie Jillo comes from a coffee harvesting family and now owns his own farm in the Sidamo region where he grows coffee, bananas and pineapples. Mirie processed his coffee with the help of the Gora Kone washing station.
