Bedhatu Jibicho is processed as a separate micro-lot at the Banko Gotiti Cooperative where Bedhatu is a member. The Banko Gotiti cooperative is located in the southern district of Gedeb, Ethiopia. The cooperative was established in 2013 and Bedhatu’s farm was selected as a model to help everyone in the cooperative improve their harvesting methods. Bedhatu takes great pride in the fact that she has managed the farm operations for over 50 years, even before her husband passed away in 1991. As Bedhatu is now over 80 years old, her adult children have started to become more involved in continuing her rich tradition of coffee production. The family plans to use the premiums from coffee sales to expand production and start an export company.
