Etiopia – Burtukaana Hambela Wamena #1
Hambela Wamena is one of three washing stations owned by Mekuria Mergia. Our history goes way back as we used to buy coffee from another of his washing stations, Wote, in the early days of Nordic Approach. This particular washing station is located in Hambela, Guji, and buys cherries from around 500 farmers.
Mekuria Merga is one of three washing stations with this name. This particular washing station is located in Hambela, Guji, and buys cherries from around 500 farmers.
The three washing stations are named after their owner, Mekuria Merga, a highly respected coffee professional with 23 years experience in the industry. Mekuria Merga decided to establish his own export company “Wete Ambela” in 2018 to export coffees from his washing stations, which are renowned for their high quality coffees. Our sister company Nordic Approach has been buying Mekuria’s coffee through different exporters since 2014. Now we have a chance to buy directly from Mekuria, further strengthening an already great relationship.
