This exceptional natural processed coffee was dry milled and exported by Primrose, PLC. The coffee was grown by smallholder farmers living around the kabele (town) of Haru Suke in Gedeo, Yirgacheffe region. Most contributing farmers own less than a hectare of land, and they grow coffee simply as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other subsistence crops, such as sweet potato, mangos and avocados.
Primrose S.P. PLC is a stakeholder in the supplier washing station and works directly with them to control for quality and cultural practices on the farm. Income from coffee is important but minimal for most farmers due to the small size of their farms. As such, inputs are minimal - most coffee grown in the region is 100% organic, though not certified, as farmers simply don't have the money to apply chemical fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides. Primrose ensures that there are argricultural officers who work closely with each farmer to ensure the fertilit of the farm land. In fact, soon the wet mill and surrounding farmers will also be RFA and UTZ certified.
Primrose pay more than the market price for a kilogram of red cherries, and the farmers that bring quality red cherries are paid a cash incentive, encouraging higher overall quality. Coffee is handpicked before being delivered to the mill collection points, usually within 5km of the prducers' homes. Great care is taken upon delivery to seperate out any overripe, underripe or damanged beans before consolidating with other lots for the road to the wet mill.
Do note that the coffee will be dispatched in whole beans only, unless stated otherwise.
