Pride Mill is deeply isolated in the Yirgacheffe countryside, and is a new project by our friends at GMT, whose vision is to build Pride Mill and its coffees into the pride of Ethiopia. This is its second year in production, and we have been privileged to consult on many aspects of the project, as well as to represent its entire 2016/17 harvest. 2017/18 coffees are coming in with plenty of promise, including washed, sundried naturals, special prep lots, and honey-process.

Pride Mill sprawls at the base of Mount Lato Samalo, around 7,070 feet elevation, employing 200 laborers for receiving, washing, sorting, drying, and preparing coffees for transport. While located in the Borena Zone, it is about 20 kilometers from Chelelektu village. Technically classified as Gelana Abaya district, it borders Kochere district (the beautiful landmark of Reko Mountain is visible just beyond Lato Samalo) and lies within the coffee area we all know as Yirgacheffe. 

People like Zodi, Desale (assistant manager), Teriku (the engineer at Pride), and Tesfaye (accountant for Pride), and the beautiful community surrounding them and laboring every day during the harvest season in the harsh sun to produce masterpieces for us to share with roasters around the world: they inspire us to labor harder than ever to ensure that everybody gets what they need, that the coffee value chain really is valuable, and that these coffees grow to their full potential.

This coffee is incredible. Trust us.

Notes: Honeysucle, Chamomile, Sweet
