The Girls Gotta Run Foundation (GGRF) is a non-profit organisation which uses running and education to empower young women and their communities in Ethiopia, and this coffee will play a small but significant role in supporting this truly great cause.
GGRF are sponsoring 10 young women and their mothers each year in the programme, donating towards education, health care, daily meals, uniform and athletics equipment, books, tutoring and access to school clubs.
Zelalem Dawit is one of those girls, whose goal is to one day become an engineer. The proceeds from the sales of this coffee will be donated to GGRF and will go directly to sponsoring Zelalem's education for the next year. To read more about Zelalem's story, click here.

Mustefa Abakeno is a smallholder farmer who owns 18 hectares of land near to Agaro in the Jimma area of Western Ethiopia. The farm and wet mill is located 2040masl and is planted with various variety selections from the Jimma research centre. Mustefa has a small disk pulper, which he uses for half of his coffee, the other half is dried as a natural. Due to a lack of water in the area and limited space to ferment the coffee, Mustefa ferments the coffee for a short period of time before he moves it to his drying beds, and the result is something like a light honey process.
