When good coffees dance on our tongue, our souls dance with the farmers.
In Chekata village sits the Mormora estate, surrounded by a semi-forest area within the Oddo Shakisso woreda where the altitude ranges from 1850-2250m, qualifying any coffee grown there as Strictly High Grown (SHG) coffees. This is important to most coffee aficionados because higher altitude (and colder climate) often allow coffees to grow slower and denser, resulting in amazing flavours woven with crisp acidity in those smaller seeds.
This batch of Mormora Chekata natural processed coffee carries an intense blueberry characteristic with a mixture of grape-like acidity and an aftertaste of oolong tea. Sweet!
From Zero to Hero
Back then, Mormora Coffee PLC had but a small washing station with coffees from their own estate and several nearby small lot holders; they produced at a much smaller scale with limited production capacity compared to the other bigger players.
But that didn’t stop Mormora from dreaming big.
For years, Mormora estate held on to quality farming and sagacious business practices, which allowed them to ride the tidal waves when the rise of specialty coffee in the past decade shifted a lot of attention to the livelihood and sustainability of the coffee farmers in the origins. By 2010, Mormora Coffee PLC successfully evolve from a small supplier to a full-load container coffee exporter. It is incomparable to other coffee giants, but that speaks volume of both Mormora’s coffee quality and its consistency.
That’s why independent coffee roasters like us love them, even when we are thousand miles away in Malaysia – from zero to hero!
