Description

In remote Mankira, which to this day can only be reached on foot, lies the origin of Coffea Arabica, according to tradition. Sturdy, moss overgrown mother trees are witnesses of the countless wild coffee varieties, which are collected there by 460 farmers on a forest area of 572 hectares. The coffee farmers of Mankira naturally dry their wild coffee cherries in the sun. After peeling, bean after bean is sorted by hand. For the Wild Coffee Collection, we select the best beans and roast them into a powerful, intense coffee.

Without plantation - pure and unadulterated

In the last remaining mountain rain forests of the Ethiopian province of Kaffa, the original home of Coffea Arabica, wild coffee still grows today, completely naturally and without being planted. But this genetic natural treasure is in danger of being lost due to increasing deforestation. The wild coffee project is designed to counteract this process: by collecting and selling wild Arabica coffee, over 6,000 farmers earn a secure income from the forest and can sustainably improve the living conditions of their families.

Together for the preservation of the rainforest

The wild coffee project gives the forest an economic value for the farmers. With its unique biodiversity and valuable wild coffee stock, the forest can be preserved as a natural resource.

Since 2010, the Kaffa region has been recognised as a Unesco Biosphere Reserve which harbours strictly protected core zones in which only wild coffee may be collected as well as transitional zones that include gentle use and development areas located on agricultural land. This offers a prime example of how nature conservation and economic development can sustainably be combined.

The Roasting Trade - Passion & Commitment

Original Food loves its craft and refines the wild coffee through traditional craftsmanship, combined with the latest roasting technology, in its own Kaffa workshop in Kriens, Lucerne.
