2.5 year listener, first time purchaser; excited to get my mouth on this #☕️!!! .
@catcloudcoffee embodies what it means to run a business with a proper “why” in mind. I’ve been reading some @simonsinek and C&C keeps coming to mind when Simon describes what it means to be a business with a mission that people believe in and want to get behind. .
Thanks @jtrubaca, @realchrisbaca, @charlesbabinski and the rest of the C&C team for bringing the 🔥 in your vids, podcasts, coffees and goals! You guys rock!
A Long Journey of Coffee Farmers.
Heleph1933 Coffee Blogs
By Deborah D. Meet Fura & Deraro
Two young women, Furra Shetaye & Deraro Arfasa, age of 24 & 25 came to be a family with the Heleph1933 plc. These two we came across in different households, they didn't had a chance to learn when they were young. Heleph1933 Plc provided these two energetic women who live in different places with jobs on the site of its production for coffee beans.
They now are working very hard and very attentively since coffee is well known in their town.
The awareness of coffee is very high in Sidama zone, Arbegona bochishisha kebele. These two women take care of our products just like their own.
Heleph1933 Plc is also helping these two women on their education since it's the key in life, and is very proud to have such a young, hard working and strong women like Furra & Deraro. Heleph1933 is also looking forward to work with many women in this town in the future.

ABOUT THE GUJI REGION //
Coffees from Guji were previously classified as ‘Sidamo’(a very wide geographical classification encompassing much of central-south Ethopia), however more recently they have been separated from this classification and recognised for their unique and distinctive cup profile. Coffees that are classified as ‘Gujis’ originate from the ‘woreda’ (administrative regions) of Adoola Redi, Uraga, Kercha, Bule Hora and Shakiso (where this lot is from). Guji is named after the Oromo people, a tribe with a long, proud history in coffee production. Most communities in the region still live rurally and make a living from farming. Families usually live in modest homes (often a single round mud hut) and farm plots of land to grow both cash crops and food for their own consumption. Coffee remains the main cash crop for most families in the Guji region, who typically half a hectare to 1.5 hectares of coffee planted alongside food for consumption and other cash crops such as the Ethiopian banana.
Had a beautiful lunch at Kodama cafe. Highly recommend the croissant royale. The apple cider vinegar hollandaise is awesome. Also this Ethiopian Aricha cold brew has an outstanding profile of grapefruit and chocolate.
