More about the Nensebo Suke and Abdella coffee:
Abdella Nabi Galgiyo started in coffee in 1982 as a small-scale trader of coffee and other commodities. He soon upgraded his business to move goods between the large lake town of Hawassa and the communities within the Bale Forest, later starting a small copoperative to run a dry mill and move larger volumes of coffee, which he began to brand as Suke Coffee. After much success, Abdella started his own farm in 2018, and in 2019 he achieved his first harvest. In 2020 he processed his first farm-lot for export.
