Ethiopia is one of Africa’s largest coffee producers and home to the Arabica plant. It's estimated that around 15M Ethiopians relies on coffee for their livelihood.
The country’s biggest industry however, is charity, not coffee.
It can change though, calculations show that if Ethiopia did start to roast it’s own beans and export the finished product, the country could triple it’s income and start to move beyond aid.
We strive to deliver a coffe, that is as sustainable as it’s tasty. In addition to a more balanced value distribution, we also focus on reducing our carbon footprint.
As a result of the organic forestry farming, GORA has a low CO2 consumption and we work continuously to lower it even further, also in terms of logistics and packaging.
Completed earlier this year, GORA is now roasting at what will be one of Africa's first carbon free roasting facilities. While the roastery is operational and technically compliant, the official carbon free validation is still pending.
