Milk Chocolate, Toffee, Marmalade
The Kilenso Mokonisa Cooperative represents more than 2,000 members and exists within the region-wide Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union. Quality coffee has acted as the stepping stone for wider improvements in the communities income, education and now climate change mitigation and resilience.
With most contributing members producing coffee on 2 hectares or less the scale of the cooperatives output is truly a collaborative effort. Here coffee is grown amongst the sustenance crop Enset with farmers hand-picking before delivering their cherries to the cooperatives washing station. The classic Ethiopian washed process uses clean water to seperate any less ripe coffee and the resulting fermentation translates to a crisp, clean and quintessential Sidamo flavour profile.
