Background Details

This coffee is produced by Daniel Miju and processed as a separate micro-lot at the Worka Cooperative where Daniel is a founding member. The Worka cooperative is located in the southern district of Gedeb, Ethiopia. The cooperative was established in 2005 and Daniel’s farm has been utilized as a model to help everyone in the cooperative improve their harvesting methods.  Daniel was born in Worka and started cultivating coffee in the late 1970s.  Now in his 70s, Daniel remembers a time before the cooperatives when he had to transport his coffee cherry by horse to the town of Yirgacheffe.  Through coffee Daniel has supported his large family, which includes 23 children who continue to live close to Daniel and help him manage the farm.
