Ethiopia Meseret Tegeno Lalissa Gedeb (filter)

Gedeb is a district named for its most famous town in the Gedeo Zone, and this is primarily an agrarian society.
According to a 2007 census, 11% of the population lives in urban areas; the rest lives in rural areas and consists predominately of subsistence farmers. Families typically farm small plots of land near their homes and intersperse food crops with coffee and other cash crops.
Most coffees grown in Gedeb are local landrace varieties (often also called Ethiopian heirloom). The Jimma Agricultural Research Centre (JARC) developed other types grown in the region. JARC is an important research centre for Ethiopia. It has done a great deal of work on developing disease-resistant and high-yielding varieties that still demonstrate quality in the cup.

Meseret Tegeno grew up in a family steeped in coffee. Her parents were coffee farmers who taught her everything she knew. Today, Meseret continues to farm coffee to support her family of 10 children. With over a decade of experience, she focuses on improving her coffee quality. Her dedication to improving her coffee's quality is evident in each year's increased cup score. She focuses on further improving her methods and final product with each success.
