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.
