Epic heritage and epic landscapes. A world-famous producing region. The birthplace of coffee, and still the country we love to visit the most.
Smallholders who have a few hundred trees, coming together at local wet mills to deliver perfectly-ripe cherries. Late-night processing operations in the crisp night air at almost 2,000 metres above sea level.

Awash River is a curated coffee sourced from smallholder farmers in the Guji and Sidamo regions of southern Ethiopia.
The River Awash carves through almost 750 miles of Ethiopia’s great rift valley, providing a vital water source for millions. Archaeologists believe humans have lived along the river since the dawn of man. Known as “the cradle of humankind”, the middle Awash is home to some of the most important archaeological discoveries in history, including perhaps the most famous hominid fossil ever found: “Lucy”.
