Ethiopia's Adisu Kidane is a member of the Halo Bariti Cooperative in the southern district of Gedeb, Ethiopia. This year his coffee is processed as a micro-lot, and he has been selected as a model to help improve harvests for the cooperative. Adisu was born in Gedeb and worked alongside his father on the family farm until his passing in 2002. Since, his decades of experience led to a focus on specialty coffee, and premiums from sales are to establish his own mill and support his family of 8 children and his mother.
Geography in Ethiopia can be confusing, compounded by redrawn districts and the unincorporated ag landscape through the last decade. Although areas are booming with coffee, there is conflict of regional ethnics that predates the borders. For example, the Oromo people live with threats of displacement, violence, and famine, despite representing 1/3 of Ethiopian citizens. The Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is Oromo, and his progressive policies have overshadowed the challenges that the people face.
