This is our third year of a coffee relationship with Abana Estate Farm. This coffee is an exceptionally complex coffee from the Limmu region. "Sulladjah" is the name that was given to the highest part of the farm at around 2,200 meters above sea level.
Abana Translates to “our fathers” (Arabic). Their name pays homage to the deep roots, rich heritage and origins of wild arabica coffee that traces to the heart of Ethiopia.
They believe that their work to produce the best specialty coffee is as fundamentally important as the positive impact they make in the community.
The Abana Estate demonstrates sustainable business practices by paying fair wages and respecting all partners. They implement the latest coffee education and trainings on picking, sorting, and different processing methods to ensure the ever improving quality.
They focus on the environment by utilizing water efficient machinery and preserving the beautiful forest in which they work. They also carry out impactful social programs including facilitating medical projects, investing in infrastructure and much more.
