Coffees from the Gedeb region have been gaining a lot of attention for their quality and flavor notes over the last few years, thanks in large part to the work of SNAP Coffee Producers. SNAP has worked to improve local coffee washing stations through their meticulous attention to detail. The coffees we source through SNAP are all grown on certified organic farms at particularly high elevations (over 2000 meters above sea level). SNAP is a family-owned business. It was founded in 2008 by Negusse Debela, who first made a name for himself as one of the largest importers of computer parts and components in Ethiopia. A relative newcomer to the coffee industry, Negusse had a coffee "Aha!" moment while visiting family in Minnesota, where he had an Ethiopian coffee pour over that gave him a new appreciation for the coffee from his home country. Inspired by this experience, he returned to Ethiopia with a goal of becoming one of the highest quality exporters of coffee in the country. He began by touring coffee regions, studying farming and processing, and enlisted the help of Abenezer Asafaw, a young coffee professional, as his quality and coffee manager. Together, they began managing coffee processing sites around Nensebo, Yirgacheffe, and Guj, bought land to build their own processing sites, and in 2019, they completed their own dry mill. In Ethiopia, smallholder farmers often grow cherries in their own fields, then bring their harvests to their community washing station. For this reason, the equipment, skill and attention to detail of the washing stations are very important in determining the quality of the cup.
