Ethiopia Dimtu is a sweet and fruity, yet elegant coffee, with flavours of peach, lemon candy and elderflower.
We got our eyes on this coffee as we cupped coffee for this year's Ethiopia Guji. We noticed that the quality was high in all samples we received from the washing station Dimtu, which created a lot of confidence in the producer Marshrashu Wekane. Being able to buy several different coffees from the same producer and thereby increase volumes is something we really like. Therefore, we are very happy to present this delicious washed coffee from the same origin as our natural Guji.
Marshrashu Wekane is a second-generation coffee producer originally from Yirgacheffe in Ethiopia. After his agricultural studies at the University of Addis Ababa, he established the washing station Dimtu Hambela in Guji 2019. He chose the area for the good conditions that exist there with high altitude, good, rich soil and vegetation.
Today, a total of almost 2,000 farmers deliver coffee to the station, which is located at 2,200 meters above sea level. Marshrashu has about 150 farmers who he has worked with very closely ever since the start. He says that the goal of the washing station is to develop the work together with the farmers and create a consistently high-quality product, which in the long run gives everyone involved even better pay.
