For several years now we have been buying from this 1,000 hectare Organic farm (Jeff Babcock, Zoka Founder/CEO, visited in 2017). We were honored to be a Good Food Awards Finalist in November 2021 with another one of Kossa Geshe's coffees.  

Kossa Geshe was established in 2009, in the Kebena Forest, through a land grant from Ethiopia’s investment agency to protect some of the last remaining dense forest in the country. 

Ethiopia has a special relationship with coffee - it’s the birthplace of the coffee tree and the seventh largest coffee producing country in the world.  Coffee makes up about 40% of Ethiopia’s export market and nearly 15% of the population is employed by the coffee industry.
