Duromina comes to us from the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia and if you’ve been drinking Ethiopian coffee for a while you’ll almost certainly recognise this cooperative. They’re a big name in specialty coffee now having gained widespread name recognition about a decade ago. At that time USAID’s Technoserve project invested in Agaro by providing brand new processing equipment. This transformed the reputation of this region’s coffee from lower grade sundried naturals to immaculately processed high quality offerings.
Duromina operates under the leadership of the Kata Muduga cooperative union, whose continued investment in the coops that it leads makes possible some of the most delicious and coveted coffees in the world. Thanks to Technoserve’s initial investment and the leadership within Duromina and Kata Muduga, Duromina’s processing is incredible and harvest after harvest they prove why they are such a well known name in the specialty coffee world.
