During the harvest season, Nafkot employs 35 seasonal workers, along
with a core team of 6 permanent employees, who collectively share her
dedication to producing high-quality coffee. Her farming practices are
rooted in tradition, as the coffee is cultivated under the shade of false
banana trees, fostering a sustainable and harmonious ecosystem. The
meticulous handpicking of cherries reflects her unwavering commitment
to quality, even though the absence of formal organic certification is a
pragmatic choice made due to the high costs involved in verification.

Following the harvest, her farm follows a natural dry processing
approach, allowing the coffee cherries to sun-dry over a period of 12 to
15 days. The dried cherries are then temporarily stored in a local
warehouse on-site before their journey to Addis Ababa for further
processing and eventual export.

empowerment in the realm of coffee cultivation. Her farming practices,
commitment to quality, and collaborative efforts reflect the essence of
progress and sustainability in the world of coffee.
