About The Coffee
Although this is an ancient and rich coffee-producing region; producers are still facing threats such as climate change and alterations in the environment. Additionally, as the climate shifts to warmer and moister conditions – it is creating a more habitable area for the Coffee Berry Borer, a common coffee pest in Ethiopia. On top of that, producers also struggle with the fluctuating market and high input costs.
To combat these obstacles, producers have begun to work with agricultural development agents to create new environmental protection projects. These projects include removing older trees and replanting with more sustainable varieties. To ameliorate the ever-changing market, various stakeholder organizations are working to pay fairer prices to the producers. The producers also maintain their coffee quality by regulating the soil health via incorporation of compost into the soil.
Coffee producers in Ethiopia are classified as ‘passive organic,’ meaning that they have 100% organic production methods, but are unable to afford the high certification fees. Natural methods are used to fertilize the soil and prevent the spread of pests and diseases; especially since producers lack access to chemical inputs.
