Get to know the work of the coffee growers and producers of Abyssinia Coffee

Abyssinia is produced by a collective of coffee farmers in the Sidama coffee growing region of Ethiopia.

The plantations where our batch of Abyssinia is grown in Ethiopia have been passed down from generation to generation. The coffees are obtained through the Central Ethiopian Auction taking into account two parameters: delight in the cup and respect for the surrounding communities. They buy red cherry from farmers around their washing stations in Yirgacheffe and Sidama, and prepare this coffee for export. They take care of their teams and control their coffee processes from start to finish.

Abyssinia is a coffee of the Terras range.
