Farm owner Giday Berhe began his career as a coffee trader in 1993 and in the following years opened wet and dry mills in Jimma to supply the market with quality coffee. In 2000, Giday founded Limmu Kossa in the village of Galeh in Jimma, and today the farm employs 500 full-time, year round workers cultivating exquisite Ethiopian heirloom varietals across 356 hectares of land. The result of Giday's rigorous quality standards and uncompromising professionalism is coffee that stands out in a country where excellent coffee abounds. The farm cultivates its heirloom varietals to be as close to their wild grown counterparts as they can, made possible by exceptional agroforestry practices. The plants grow in the shade of of 43 different species of trees, allowing for slow cherry development and beans that are denser and more flavorful.
