About the grower:  Coffee is the main source of income that Bekele Heto uses to support his family of 14. At 52 years old, he has been growing coffee for over 15 years and is now able to sell as a micro-lot from his farm in the coveted Gedeo Zone which is located in some of the highest growing elevations for coffee in the world. This narrow section of plateau is dense with farmers whose coffee is known as “Yirgacheffe”. This more remote corner of the Gedeo plateau produces some of the most beautifully perfumed and candy-like natural coffees one can find in all of Ethiopia. This micro-lot is certified direct trade ensuring the coffee remains un-diluted by typical consolidations in Ethiopia.
