Duromina is a well known heavy hitter from Ethiopia, coming to us this season full of ripe melon, apricot sweetness, and pleasant Meyer lemon acidity. Despite its reputation as a world class coffee growing region, Agaro has only come to prominence in the last decade, after receiving some significant foreign investment by Technoserve. With the introduction of sophisticated processing equipment, Duromina has been able to shine as some of the most delicious and coveted coffees in the world.


As a member of the Kata Muduga Cooperative Union, Duromina is given the same immaculate processing as Yukro, our other Kata Muduga coffee from this season, ending up perfectly clean before they hit the drying beds. This, along with speedy lot selection and shipping means that these coffees are absolutely pristine when they arrive in country and only get better when they age. Luckily, we were able to secure a healthy amount so we’re very excited to see how these coffees develop as we work our way through them: our importer reports that they can peak in flavor up to a year after harvest!

Agaro, Ethiopia

Duromina comes to us from the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia. Nowadays, Duromina has widespread name recognition, but it actually didn’t find its way to market until ten years ago, when USAID’s Technoserve project vested Agaro—once known for less-than-stellar Grade 5 sundried naturals—with brand-new processing equipment, allowing their coffee to showcase its unique character and improve the lives of those growing it in the process.
