Ethiopia is one of the world's leading coffee producers. About half of the coffee beans produced are consumed domestically. This time, I would like to take a closer look at how coffee is consumed in Ethiopia. Only a small portion of Ethiopian coffee beans are sold in Japan. By reading the article, you can know the existence of real "Ethiopian coffee".
Galitebe handles two Ethiopian green coffee bean producers. Today, I would like to talk about one of them, the story with Habutam and the raw beans we handle. I remember eating injera together at a local restaurant, no, a cafeteria, when I first met Hubtam. Habtum didn't have a smartphone, he didn't even have an email address, let alone a social network. All communication is over the phone or in person. He always wears a checked shirt and picks me up in a truck.
