From the producer, Haile Coffee:

"The production, processing and export of our coffee is done in a way that ensures traceability of our single-origin beans. We have a well-organized coffee processing system and all our activities around picking, sorting, processing, transporting and delivering for export are focused on achieving consistently optimal standards to ensure high customer satisfaction.

"Covering a total area of 1,500 hectares, our farm in Masha is divided into 51 microlots. Traced carefully across the entire production process on the farm, these lots provide an opportunity for differentiating flavors and aromas and selecting premium coffee beans."

"Haile Gebrselassie was born in 1973 into a farming family in the Arsi region of Ethiopia. His family were subsistence farmers; Haile was one of ten children. As a young boy Haile used to fetch water from the local river a few miles away. His mother died when he was just seven years old. Fast forward forty years to where Haile is today, in the thick of a fast-paced life far removed from his childhood days. Having retired from a 25-year career as one of the world’s most successful ever distance runners, Haile is now working on a range of businesses which provide employment to several thousand workers across Ethiopia. Haile has always nurtured an ambition to grow coffee, a drink at the heart of Ethiopian culture which enjoys almost sacred status. 'I am so proud of what we have done for the community in Masha, building a school and constructing an all-weather road to improve access for the local people.' In becoming one of Ethiopia’s biggest producers of specialty coffee, Haile is going back to his roots, helping local communities to develop and doing what he can to move his country forward."
