Rob says: Almaz Sahille Horo is a 46 year old woman with 11 children who are all in school. She got into coffee farming at a young age, working the land she inherited from her father. Almaz has received an award for being a model farmer in her community.
With the help of her export assistant Ayidefer, Almaz recently began exporting coffee directly from her farm by taking advantage of the incentives given to small scale farmers by the government.
I don’t know if it is because Almaz is a different breed of coffee producer, but when i first cupped her beans I was blown away; it was so different from all other natural Ethiopian coffees I tasted before, which is exactly why i bought this small microlot. It even tastes so special that i’m not sure you’ll love it haha.
