Asnaketch Thomas is Ethiopia’s only female coffee grower, miller and exporter. At her mill she has the capacity to produce fully washed as well as natural processed coffee. Her cherry selection and her attention to every detail from sorting through processing elevates her coffee to grand stature and year after year her coffee displays its characteristic profile.
Her coffee grows high in the Amaro Mountains, a region characterized by beautiful bamboo forests and abundant waterfalls. The name “Gayo” means waterfall.
Asnakech’s pioneering work as an agricultural leader in Ethiopia has also involved her commitment to help establish a advocacy program for other women coffee growers. The group she helped to establish group is called the Ethiopian Women In Coffee Association (EWiC). You can learn more about the EWiC and their involvement at the 2017 World of Coffee Budapest Convention here.
