About our different type of lots
Taferi Kela is more than just a village; it is a living testament to the resilience and beauty of the Sidamo
region. Named to the pitstop Emporer Haile Selassie (Ras Teferi) once made, the green, high altitude hills of Taferi Kela draw an amazing potential for growing coffee.
Despite the potential soil and diverse forests, the inhabitants of Taferi Kela are facing many challenges to sustain their lives. There are no jobs out of coffee farming, the quality of health care and education causes many disabilities. Climate changes triples the challenges ahead. But the community of Taferi Kela is strong and collective. Together they, and we believe, we can change our future.
As the moon rises, illuminating the path ahead, the people of Taferi Kela rest, knowing that tomorrow they will rise again, their spirits intertwined with the land they call home.
Opportunities for our planet
We believe coffee-farming can only continue when the planet benefits from it. We farm towards net-zero in 2025, by todays action on preserving and restoring agroforestry. And teaching and facilitating our community farmers in it.
Opportunities for our community
Everyone who lives in a geographical zone should be part of the community. Farmers, and far beyond. We encourage young adults to start their micro enterprises in order to create more jobs. We invest in our growing inclusive farming and processing team, and offer talented youth a work & learn program in our coffee academy programs.
