'Duromina', means “to improve their lives” in the Afan Oromo language. Coffee has grown here for generations but was traditionally processed using the natural method with poor results & low coffee prices. since this has been addressed, the Duromina farmers produce coffees of outstanding quality with scores of 90+ being achieved.
In 2010, around one hundred local coffee farmers banded together to form Duromina. As the name suggests, their goal was simple: to improve their lives. With technical support, business advice & access to finance through TechnoServe’s Coffee Initiative, the members acquired & installed a wet mill & began processing fully washed coffee for the first time.
