Limmu Kossa is a 356 acre estate in the Jimma zone of Ethiopia owned by Giday Behre. The farm was established in 2000 and now employs 500 people full-time, year-round. In the towns near Limmu Kossa, Giday is known as Ollie, which means "one who uplifts" in the local language. Given Giday's work to build schools, roads, and provide subsidized goods and services to Limmu Kossa's workers, the name is fitting—he is a pillar of the local community. 43 different species of trees shade the heirloom coffee varieties growing at Limmu Kossa, which helps the beans develop slower, becoming more dense and flavorful as a result. Cherries are processed with two on-site environmentally-friendly wet mills and one eco-mill equipped for both wet and dry processing. The farm also has a honey production operation consisting of more than 107 modern beehives. We were able to pay Giday an extra $0.75 a pound on top of what he was already paid to bring their payment up to true value.
