Importer Notes: Jason Long, Café Imports’ CEO, has worked for many years to develop long-term partnerships in Ethiopia. Through our various relationships there, we are pleased to offer a variety of Ethiopian coffees every year. We buy directly from the second-tier co-operative society SCFCU (Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union), which allows us to bring Fair Trade and organic-certified Sidama coffees from specific farmer co-ops to our customers. Through an export partner, we are also able to offer washing-station-specific lots, with limited traceability as purchased through the current ECX structure. In future years, the traceability of these lots should be increased, as we will be able to buy directly from the washing stations through our exporter. We also do offer some standard, less-expensive, and less-traceable but still very good quality ECX lots, sourced for their quality and true-to-region profiles.

As the industry waits to see how the marketplace will develop in the wake of the Exchange changes, we are committed to strengthening our relationships, specifically in Sidama and within Yirgacheffe, and hope that the coming years will see more farmer-specific lots and special-prep projects with price premiums attached for quality and differentiation.
