The Eshetu Estate was established in 2008.

The Eshetu Estate is certified organic - which means:

  • No synthetic fertilizers or chemicals used in growing or production

  • Coffee is grown with only organic fertilizers - coffee pulp, chicken manure, or compost

  • A composting system/water & waste management

In 2017, Girma was producing 1⁄2 washed and 1⁄2 naturals, but due to the success of the washed coffees, changed to primarily washed coffees.

For Ethiopian coffees, the Grade signifies first, that the coffee is washed, since grading happens once the coffee’s cherry is removed on a pulper & then sorted into weight classes - Grade 1 being the heaviest. Weight relates to quality.

Secondly, the difference between grade 1 and 2 is defined by the number of visible defects in the prep. If a coffee receives a grade 1 classification, it has 0 - 3 defects; this is rare! Grade 2 coffees allow 4 - 12 defects.

Coffee graded 1 or 2 is considered “specialty.”

74110 and 74112 Varieties are Jimma Research varieties/Ethiopia Heirlooms - Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC)—the national coffee research institute in Ethiopia— has been developing high yielding, disease resistant, drought tolerant and superior quality coffee varieties for the last few decades.

*the reason for this institute is to help organize all the uncategorized varieties (previously labeled “Ethiopia heirlooms”) wildly growing in the naturally accommodating environment of Ethiopia.
