In the local tongue, Duromina means “make better life” and the cooperative is doing just that. Smallholder farmers from the around the region bring their cherries to Duromina for processing, and are given a competitive Ethiopian Birr rate per kilo of cherry delivered. On top of these good prices, farmers receive a dividend at the end of the season, and the cooperative is also helping train farmers about composting - this means that better coffee can be produced without any non-organic additions.
As an espresso Duromina is one of our most characterful coffees this season. We love this coffee as a filter, and with a few trials realised just much you can enjoy this coffee through a variety of roast profiles and brewing methods, so we just had to put it on for espresso as well. With a bright lemon curd acidity, and all the aromatics we've enjoyed as a filter, the espresso brew of Duromina also brings along a big buttery body and a refreshing iced tea character.
