Ethiopia is said to be the “birthplace of coffee” and home to some of the most distinctive and flavorful coffee in the world. Perhaps this is why they’re also the main coffee-consuming country in Africa, using almost half their annual production among their own population.

The country’s populated area is in the north central region, where farming is the main activity. Periodically, droughts lead to famine, which makes earning a fair wage during prime coffee production seasons imperative.

Westrock has strong ties to the country of Ethiopia. We are devoted to helping implement washing stations and creating and organizing coffee supply chains from the farmer to the consumer who cares to know where their coffee came from.
