Gore Dako opened for its first harvest season in Fall 2019. Its location is ideal: found in the southern end of Agaro Gera in the same forests that members from Kolla Bolcha and Biftu Gudina farm their coffees, this area is also very close to the border of Goma, home to Duromina and Hunda Oli. The coffees have an exceptionally fruited character along the lines of candied citrus and honey.
Part of the Kata Muduga cooperatives, Gore Dako is part of the larger Agaro region in Jimma. Red Fox Coffee Merchants (our import partner) holds relationships extending over a decade in this region. In 2009 when they first met the people behind the Nano Challa cooperatives, their coffees were flowing into the marketplace undifferentiated and undervalued. Once USAID’s Technoserve project, which focused on improving African coffee farmers’ lives by helping them get better prices for their coffee, established the Nano Challa washing station, they saw the unique character of their coffee and invested in developing relationships with its producers, which have grown stronger to this day. More coops have sprung up over time, and they each contribute a unique character and have their own name recognition and renown. Gore Dako recently joined their ranks.
