Kaffa is a coffee region within the political zone also called Kaffa to the north in SNNPR. Chena is a Kaffa area just before entering Bench Maji. As in Ethiopia coffee is marketed through the ECX body, the traceability of this coffee is complicated. But we can assure you that it is a Kaffa gr.1. In this case, the ECX provides the washing station that in this case is owned by Lemma Mamo, where the cherry coffee from a small producer arrives who delivers his batch. In the washing station, the coffee is processed by the washed method and prepared for auction at the ECX. This is where MOPLACO buys this coffee for Xorxios. Moplaco buys that coffee inparchment and transports it to its facilities where it is threshed, cleaned and classified. Heleanna Georgalis is at the head of the company since 2008, she is immersed in the third wave of coffee, caring in the first person about the quality of the coffee she exports. She continues with her father’s legacy, and claims to feel passion for this world where she herself can experiment in processes and have fun being able to see the results. It is important to note that the uniqueness of Ethiopian coffees lies in the “non- genetic modification “ of the coffee plants. In Ethiopia there are thousands of unexplored varieties and those that are known remain intact, and this Heleanna emphasizes every time she talks about the subject.Ethiopia is the cradle of coffee, the varieties are specific to each area, scientists have recognized 37 varieties of which 34 are natural. Many times we find that Ethiopian coffee is of the Heirloom variety and what it means is that it is “ancient root”, it does not define the variety itself, but rather it is generic. The variety is named after the area in which it grows and where it has been growing for several years, it must have the characteristic flavor of the area.
