Sustainable single-origin coffee from Ethiopia
Responsible coffee enjoyment is in fashion. With the sale of Dallmayr Ethiopia, our single-origin Ethiopian coffee, we have been committed to social and sustainable development in the coffee-growing country for more than 10 years.
The origin and taste of Dallmayr Ethiopia
Ethiopia has been the most important coffee-growing country for Dallmayr for more than 50 years. Arabica beans from the fertile highlands of southern Ethiopia influence the typical flavour of several of our coffees. And it goes without saying that Dallmayr Ethiopia is one of them. This coffee’s elegant aroma stands out for notes of wild herbs rounded off with the scent of lemongrass and a hint of dark chocolate.
What makes the coffee for Dallmayr Ethiopia sustainable?
Our use of high-quality arabica coffees for Dallmayr Ethiopia benefits both yields and income in the country of origin. Washed arabicas usually command much higher prices, leading to increased revenues for the coffee farmers and their families.
What’s more, Dallmayr Ethiopia has been awarded a number of sustainability seals. In addition to the Rainforest Alliance seal, the coffee also bears the Dallmayr Via Verde logo – a symbol of our sense of responsibility towards humankind and nature.
Dallmayr has developed a close relationship with many families in Ethiopia over several generations. At Dallmayr, making the country stronger in the long term is a matter that’s particularly close to our hearts. By working on specific projects and supporting the “Menschen für Menschen” Ethiopian aid initiative, we have been committed to comprehensive and proactive development aid in Ethiopia since 2008.
So far, we have:
- Planted more than 53.5 million tree seedlings
- Built a school for around 1,000 children
- Constructed wells for the local water supply
- Developed a sustainable coffee cooperative in the project area of Dano, Ethiopia
In 2021, we received the German Award for Sustainability Projects (Deutscher Award für Nachhaltigkeitsprojekte) for our commitment to social issues and sustainability in Ethiopia.
Dallmayr Ethiopia is ideal for preparing classic filter coffee – for example with a pour-over coffee dripper or Chemex brewer.
