The Tatmara farm of Negusse Tadesse is located in the region of Nations, Nationalities and Peoples of the South. It is immersed in the heart of an ancient coffee region, 15 km from Bonga, in the village of Dakiti (Gimbo district). Kaffa is the land of origin of coffee.
The name “Tatmara” derives its meaning, in the Kaffa language, from the words “Tato”: king and “Mara”: forgiveness. It is indeed in this locality that the successive kings of Kaffa used to go once a year to pardon the prisoners. This custom ended in the 19th century after the annexation of these lands by Emperor Menelik II.

The Negusse farm covers 82 hectares, 5 of which are reserved for infrastructure, buildings and drying station. With his teams, he collects natural and honey forest coffees, dried on African beds. The 77 hectares dedicated to coffee, which he has cultivated for 10 years, are spread over a forest rich in endemic species. More than 30 varieties of trees surround the coffee trees of Negusse and provide ideal shade for a slow ripening of the cherries. Some trees, like the Qararo, are endangered in Ethiopia and the agroforestry model that Negusse is developing is one way to protect them. This farm, remarkable for the diversity of its flora, is also remarkable for that of its fauna. You can see a large number of monkeys, birds and, it seems, even a few leopards, among a rustle of insects,

The biodiversity of this farm allows a diversification of the activities of Negusse which also harvests some spices such as maniguette, or honey. Trees of different species favor staggered flowering and allow three collections of honey, with very distinct characteristics. Tatmara's coffees, made from varieties 74110, 74112 and Wush Wush, are full of complex and interesting aromas.

Our teams support Negusse in maintaining this ecological wealth. The work we do with him focuses on two angles, inseparable from each other. It is about highlighting the rare biodiversity of these lands, while refining the quality of its coffees. For this Marjorie, our agronomist, organized several training sessions to help improve harvesting and drying techniques. She also guided the Negusse teams in setting up the honey process. Fufa, our agronomist at the Addis Ababa branch, Shambé and Jacques continue this support throughout the year.
