Dimtu Tero Farm

Dimtu Tero Farm

The soils in Guji are volcanic and rich in minerals. Ideal, therefore, for the demanding Arabica coffee plant.

The beans come from the Dimtu Tero Farm, whose founder and manager is Getachew Zeleke. And he has ambitious goals: he wants to take a leading role in quality, transparency and sustainability in Guji's coffee sector. And he is convinced that he will succeed in doing so with the smallholders from Odo Shikasu.

It is important to Getachew that the smallholders he works with are partners at eye level and equal players within the value chain. Together, Getachewe and about 140 farmers from the villages of Tero, Jelewo Anona, Mancity and Hangadi have built a thriving and sustainable coffee community.

The smallholder farmers who supply coffee cherries to Dimtu Tero Farm receive above-average payment for their harvest in addition to coffee seeds and equipment, thereby committing themselves to the ambition and motivation to grow and harvest the best coffee in the region.
