In the words of friends:
"Like many black Americans, we’ve never been to our ancestral land, and to be honest cannot afford a trip back home to Africa on our own. Our coffee company has always been a grassroots movement, and our heart has always been in connecting black families in America to the diaspora through black coffee.
We’re tired of being taught about coffee from colonial lenses. Up until now we’ve learned about the coffees black history through research, reading, and conversation with black coffee farmers and professionals, mostly over instagram. But after making a tweet about our dream to go Michael Mamo of Addis Exporters reached out and offered to host us on a educational trip to the coffee motherland, and if possible, build an all black supply chain for our coffee.
Y’all, this trip could change everything."

|Refisa Washing Station is located in the heart of Nensebo Woreda, with a total of 678 farmers delivering red-ripe cherries from nearby Refisa, Roricho, Bulga, and Riripa. Coffee grows wild in the neighboring Harenna Forest, with endemic varieties from the forest making up most of what the local farmers grow. The average size of farm here is only 2 hectares, with the farmers delivering their ripe cherries daily to the local washing station. These supply side blends are known as 'day lots'|
