ABOUT

Seven Seeds has been purchasing coffee from the Haro Sana cooperative for 5 years running. Why? Since visiting this tiny washing station, dotted at the very end of a long winding road that reaches out over a hillside into the vast Agaro region closely bordered with Ilubabor, we’ve been constantly surprised at the unique and varied profile that seems to come every year from this seemingly quiet coop.

Since the development of the Kata Muduga Union, Haro Sana cooperative have been able to access financing for more processing equipment such as a second site, with a larger Penagos depulping machine and more drying beds to accommodate the amount of cherry being delivered by farmers from surrounding kebele. We’ve always found coffee from Haro Sana to be complex and multi-use, so you may have noticed it pop up on the menu in different ways over the years.

We believe in the future of coffee so we’re publishing the price we pay for coffee, so farmers don’t need to turn to other crops. We’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price we paid to the exporter. We weren’t able to get the breakdown of Farmgate pricing before publication in this instance. On top of FOB, this coffee was shipped to Melbourne, quality assessments completed, roasted (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retailed, adding significant costs. You can read more about the way we source coffee via our website.
