    Background Information

    ETHIOPIA GEDEB 1 ORGANIC NATURAL TARIKU MENGESHA GRAINPRO is produced by Tariku Mengesha and processed as a separate micro-lot by Tesfaye Roba. Tariku’s 30-acre farm is located near the community of Chelchele in the Gedeb district of the Gedeo Zone, Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region,Ethiopia. Tesfaye and his brothers recently took over farm operations for their mother, Bedihatu Jibicho (now approaching 100 years old) and also began processing and exporting coffee for neighbors like Tariku.   Tariku has been cultivating coffee for 10 years but this is the first year, with the help of Tesfaye, that he has been able to sell his coffee as a micro-lot. Coffee is Tariku’s main source of income, which he uses to support his 10 children (3 boys and 7 girls).
