Direct Coffee supports the coffee farmers in Ethiopia. For Marie and Michael, founder of Direct Coffee GmbH, have made it their task to enable the families, above all the children of the coffee farmers, a better future. That is why they have set out for Africa to get in direct contact with the coffee farmers and to get the best coffee beans. “For good coffee it needs high mountains, old, shadow-giving trees and a lot of patience”. The ripe coffee cherries, to beans they become after the roasting, are handpicked.
The ripe coffee cherries, in which two coffee beans are hidden, are picked by hand. The harvest time for the coffee cherries is limited to 2 months. After the harvest, the pulp is removed, the beans are dried and transported to Switzerland, where they are then roasted fresh.
With every coffee package they sell in Switzerland, Marie and Michaël support social projects directly on the spot. These include, for example, deworming, schooling or a visual aid for the children on the spot. On their website, directcoffee.net, they tell about their travels to Ethiopia and their projects, which they support. On the website they have their own shop and sell their coffee.
