Girma Eshetu is an engineer, machinist, tinkerer, coffee grower, and overall dazzling guy. His career started in a beer brewery, moved through a self-funded Masters in Mechanical Engineering, and culminated in what Girma believes is his ancestral homeland - fittingly shared with the purported birthplace of coffee itself - Keffa, Ethiopia. Girma’s venture toward coffee production began during his decades as an engineer in Addis Ababa, when he developed coffee processing equipment under the label GEM (Girma Eshetu Manufacturing), now seen throughout the country. Since settling in Keffa, Girma has steered his 120 hectares of land toward better production year after year, while also improving accommodations and hygienic infrastructure for his employees. Girma’s coffee is certified organic, and consistently tastes like a burst of pure blissful summertime, no matter when it hits the menu.
