Etiopia Gedeb Kello #8
Mekuria Merga is one of several washing stations with this name. This particular washing station is located in Gedo, in the woreda of Gedeb and buys cherries from around 500 farmers.
The three washing stations are named after their owner, Mekuria Merga, a highly respected coffee professional with 23 years experience in the industry. Mekuria Merga decided to establish his own export company “Wete Ambela” in 2018 to export coffees from his washing stations, which are renowned for their high quality coffees.
In December our importer visited Mekuria Merga at one of his stations in Wote, very close to Gedeb. They sat down and shared a traditional cup of coffee in a hand made hut and started discussing his operational strategy. Because of the high prices, long rains and overall lower yields, Mekuria decided to pivot and to only focus on high quality Grade 1 coffees.
He only processed a limited number of containers of both washed and naturals from all his stations, and wanted to find a partner that would be able to distribute his coffees around the world. Seen that his Hambela coffee was one of the best selections of the year, it was natural for our Norwegian importer to continue to strengthen the relationship by committing to buy these coffees.
Before establishing his own export company, Mekuria’s washing stations served as bridges between the community and exporters, and Mekuria assisted exporters in their social responsibility programs. Now Wete Ambela manages its own social programmes. For example, the exporter registers the farmers that supply to the washing stations along with their kids. The company uses this information to supply school materials for the children of the farmers. “This is our first year as an export company, we started very basic, but we plan to engage in community support projects in a way that is not generic and a way that actually addresses the most practical problems,” said Ato Elias Yifter, the export manager of Wete Ambela.
