Ethiopia Shekel Tayemastcoffee
Shekel Taye is grown just outside of Chelelektu. Usually Ethiopia coffees are sold to washing stations and then through the ECX, or Ethiopia coffee exchange. The ECX was started in 2008 to level the playing field and income between producers. This made single producer lots impossible to acquire. But the government of Ethiopia has loosened its regulations and is allowing single producers to bypass the exchange and sell direct. We were very excited to get our hands on such a coffee.
