HISTORY

It is a coffee traded through ECX, bought by MOPLACO for export. Moplaco buys this coffee as parchment coffee, so it is threshed, cleaned and sorted in their facilities. At the helm of the company since 2008 is Heleanna Georgalis, who is immersed in the third wave of coffee and cares first and foremost about the quality of the coffee she exports.

Heleanna continues her father's legacy, and claims to have a passion for this world where she can world where she herself can experiment in processes and have fun to see the results.

In Ethiopia, there are thousands of unexplored varieties and the ones that are known are still Heleanna emphasises this every time she talks about it.

 

VARIETY AND PROCESS

Heirloom is a generic name meaning "ancient root". In Ethiopia there are thousands of unexplored varieties growing wild in the terroir. The variety is named after the area in which it grows and comprises the characteristic taste of the area. 

Ethiopia is the cradle of coffee, the varieties are specific to each area, scientists have recognised 37 varieties of which 34 are from a spontaneous cross (natural pollination) and 3 from an artificial cross (by the hand of man).

The processing of this coffee is natural.
