Switchback Roasters (Colorado Springs, CO) - Ethiopia Girma Eshetu - honeydew, keylime, fruit punch
I made a quick pit stop at this roaster while headed back to Denver. I spoke to a new barista named Jenny who shared with me how the community supported their roastery. She was so generous to give me these beans which were solid. Thanks Jenny!
The Story -
Mr. Eshetu’s story begins in Guji, Ethiopia, where he was the first person in his family to put himself through university. From here, he went on to become a machinist and engineer, working for St George Brewery, a national institution, for over 30 years before starting his own company called ‘Girma Eshetu Manufacturing’, where his first successful product was a small coffee pulping machine, machines that can still be seen around Ethiopia.
His quest to source raw materials to lower his production costs brought him to the region of Keffa, where he started to notice that the people there look remarkably like him. You see, Mr. Eshetu never knew where his father was from, as he and his mother were relocated to another part of the country after his father died, and his mother never told him where exactly he was born. He decided to ask around and see if anyone knew of his father or grandfather, and met a woman who told him the same story about his grandfather that he was told as a child. It was at this moment, he says, that he knew that he wanted to return to his ancestral homelands, and with his background in building coffee equipment, why not grow coffee here?
This was only a few years ago. Now, harvesting for just the third time, Mr. Eshetu has 230,000 coffee trees over 120 hectares, and is making huge strides towards continuously improving coffee quality. This is especially challenging however, due the the remoteness of his farm. His farm is only accessible by horseback - 1.5 hours away from the nearest road. Despite this, Mr Eshetu continues to make strides, not only in the quality of his coffee, but also in improving the lives of his workers by continuing to improve the comfort of worker housing, improving sanitary facilities and more.
