Duromina is a cooperative that was established in 2011 with assistance from an NGO called Technoserve.
They are located in Agaro, close to Jimma in the west of Ethiopia, an area that is developing a reputation for intense, spicy coffees with diverse flavour attributes. Before this cooperative was established, the farmers were mainly producing lower grade naturals which were sold as Jimma Grade 5.
The cherries are selected from smallholders with less than 3 hectares of farmland. Many of these farms are located at 2000 masl or higher. The washing station uses Penagos Ecopulpers, and they ferment lightly. After pulping, the coffees are soaked in clean water overnight before they are dried on raised tables.
The result is a balanced coffeeis with peaches and roses tones. The aroma shows up as a green tea with a hint of jasmine.
