Ethiopia Mormora *2018 Good Food Awards Winner!*


This coffee is a 2018 Good Food Awards Winner*!

In the highlands of southern Ethiopia, coffee farming is a core part of the culture. The southern Guji zone of Shakiso is home to the Guji Oromo (the locals) and to the Mormora coffee farm.

Mormora sits between 2000 and 2300 meters above sea level, situated under the canopy of surrounding natural forest. They practice organic farming, benefitting from decades of plant debris decomposing on the forest floor. Each year, they add new plantings to the farm from the "Mother Tree", an heirloom coffee tree in the area. The family also works with local small holders, buying their coffee, and offering them training at the farm and mill level.

We taste: bergamot, peach, lemon citrus,

Process: washed
Elevation: 2,000-2,300 msl
Variety: heirloom

Please note: This coffee is only available in 8 oz. bags, and it's likely to disappear quickly.

More about the Good Food Awards from their website:

"The Good Food Awards celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced. We grant awards to outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients. We host an annual Awards Ceremony and Marketplace in San Francisco to honor the Good Food Award recipients who push their industries towards craftsmanship and sustainability while enhancing our agricultural landscape and building strong communities.

In its eighth year, Good Food Awards will be given to winners in 15 categories: beer, cider, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, preserved fish, honey, oils pantry, pickles, preserves, spirits, and our newest category, elixirs. Awards will be presented to producers from each of five regions of the U.S. The Good Food Awards Seal, found on winning products, assures consumers they have found something exceptionally delicious which also supports sustainability and social good.

The 2018 Winners represent the vanguard in each of their industries, setting new standards for gastronomic excellence as well as social and environmental practices that have over time proven to be adopted by the rest of the industry. Each rose to the top in a blind tasting of 2,057 entries, and also passed a rigorous vetting to confirm they meet Good Food Awards standards regarding supply chain transparency, environmentally sound agricultural practices, humane animal husbandry, and deep community engagement.”
