The Ethiopian Nigusse Lemma Limu comes from a family-owned farm in Meto Gundb, in the Limu region of south-western Ethiopia. The farm owner, Lemma Edeto, began working with coffee nearly 60 years ago and has passed down his knowledge to his two sons Haile and Nigusse. Both sons maintain the farm, which their father recovered after it as confiscated in the 1970’s by the Derg Regime. The farm sits at about 2,000 meters above sea level with natural spring streams and native indigenous varietals. The Lemma family also processes their coffee, giving them full control of the end product up to the final export stage. In February 2014 Nigusse and his family were recognized for winning the African Taste of Harvest competition, awarded by the African Fine Coffee Assocation.
