Coffee Grown Slowly Under the Shade
Bekele Legay is the name of the farm located at high altitude in Adado and one of the farmers himself. In the farm, he grows two local heirlooms - Dega and Kurume. They are common in Gedeo zone and have great distinct flavours. These coffees are grown under the shade of avocado and false banana trees, which lead them to grow under appropriate amount of sunlight. Consequently, the coffee becomes more nutritious due to relatively slower growth speed.
