About the Mill:
We're really excited about our 2014 Yirgacheffe crop. The Kochere District is in Chalalacktu, a township located in the Southern Oromia region of Yirgacheffe. Kochere is growing in popularity, showcasing the consistent diversity of Yirgacheffe’s unique terroir. Close to 100,000 local inhabitants rely on coffee as their main crop with which to feed their families.
Dominion Coffee Importers creates a positive story by finding communities that want change - not a hand out. Through establishing long-term relationships with these communities, there come several benefits: Barefoot is able to source high quality coffee that is indicative of the region and terroir, and you the customer can take part in helping to empower these farmers to become self sufficient and strengthen the ties of transparency. In addition, the relationship ensures that local doctors will help to educate the growers on basic health and medical needs.
