The Jabanto Farmer’s Group was established in 2017 to make it viable for smallholder producers to export their coffee directly to international markets. It started in 2017 with 29 producers out of the Yirgacheffe and Kochere Woredas (counties) in the Gedeo zone. The group has been so successful that its size has grown to more than 40 producers who now produce 220 metric tons of high-quality coffee a year. The Kurume variety is well-known amongst coffee farmers in Gedeo and is prized for its exceptional cup quality. This lot was made especially for Proud Mary and processed via the honey method highlighting its stone fruit notes and creating a lactic mouthfeel.
