Ethiopia Abana Estate
Established in 2009 by the Omran family, Abana Estate is a 300-hectare coffee farm favorably located in the scenic highlands of Ethiopia’s Limu growing region. With most of the farm sitting above 2,000 meters, conditions are ideal for producing specialty coffee. Realizing this, the management at Abana decided to shift their focus from producing large volumes of coffee, to producing high quality coffee instead. By tracking data, experimenting with processing and utilizing sensory skills, they were able to refine practices and significantly increase the quality of their coffee. Although this is the first time we have purchased coffee from Abana Estate, we tasted samples from the farm for the past few harvests and have witnessed their new focus pay dividends on our own cupping table.
