Coffee from its Origin

Lulo coffee is a coffee producer and exporter company co-founded by Q Grader and Q Processing Professional, Mr. Robel Kidane. Currently, Lulo owns mills and farms in Gedeb (Yirgacheffe) and Hambella Guji producing fine specialty Honey, Natural, and Anaerobic Natural coffees. Also, Lulo is working with other mill owners in Sidama, Yirgacheffe, and West Arsi. These mills produce fine washed and natural coffees. In addition, Lulo works with single farmers in Guji, Sidama, Yirgacheffe, and West Arsi. Through our project, The Lulo Promise, we work with single farmers who have two hectares and above as a their consultant/agent in quality control, market connection and facilitating export process. In 2019, While driving around the south eastern coffee growing highlands searching ideal location for Lulo's mill and farm development, we met many farmers with two hectares and above who have a license to process and export their coffee own their own. However, many were having challenges finding a market on their own. we decided to step in and assist farmers because we saw opportunity in the challenges they were facing. The Lulo Promise currently has over 200 farmers under its program. Among our farmers are some of the finalists/winners from 2020 and 2021 COE Ethiopia competition. Also, we have many women farmers in our program. These coffees are single farm coffees with exceptional quality and traceability. before bringing in a farmer to the project, Mr. Robel meets and visits the farmer/farm to see the farmer is open to adhere by quality and traceability protocol set by Lulo. Once admitted, Mr. Robel pays a visit to each farmer twice during the harvest to inspect/advice on quality control. Our team member within the woreda where the farmer is located visits farmers frequently to advice on quality control and sample collection. We pass 80-88% of the value to the farmer. We are very transparent with our pricing and how much of the value we pass to the farmer. in most cases, 88% of the value is passed to the farmer. In some occasions when Lulo provides working capital to the farmer, the farmer receives 80% of the value. Lulo takes care of expenses related to export processing and marketing.

Single Farm Ethiopian Coffee

Lulo coffee is a coffee producer and exporter. It has it’s own mills and farm in Sidama, Gedeo(Yirgacheffe), Guji, and West Arsi. It also works with single farmers in the above regions. These farmers have an average of five hectares of coffee farms, which is large in Ethiopian standard. The farmers process their coffees at the farm. Lulo coffee works as their agent in finding them a market and help them with the shipping logistics. We are very transparent with our pricing and how much of the value we pass to the farmer. We pass 80-88% of the value to the farmer. I, Robel Kidane, am the co-founder of Lulo Coffee, and I am a CQI Certified coffee processing professional. I spend most of my time traveling across the coffee growing regions in Ethiopia reaching out to farmers, making relationships and advising farmers on quality control. This year we worked with forty farmers, and for the coming harvest we plan to increase our farmer-partners to well over hundred. Among our farmers are some of the finalists from 2020 and 2021 COE Ethiopia competition. Also, we work with women farmers that produce exceptional coffees. Coffee farm ownership is a male dominated business here in Ethiopia; Even though, most of the farm work is done by women. Lulo Coffee is doing all it can to promote the very few women coffee farmers in the above regions.
