100% made for Ethiopia.
First of its kind
Most coffee brands only import unprocessed coffee beans. Thus, the majority of the profits is made via further processing such as roasting, printing and packaging. Unfortunately, none of these processes take place in the country of origin. We do things differently:
Solino is the first coffee which is 100% produced in Ethiopia.
What exactly makes us special?
What others say about Solino Coffee
"It is also unusual that the production process continues even after roasting. [...] The packages are emblazoned with the label: "Solino Coffee". The label is also made here. A total of 150 jobs have been created this way." (Source)
"And that's what's special about this project. Roasting in the country and selling the finished product instead of just the beans. 60%, he said, has been the increase in value here at the company. 120 jobs have been created in the process." (Link to video)
"This coffee project develops the “fair-trade-idea” even further: a first class Arabica highland coffee is now introduced to the market. The coffee beans are not only harvested in Ethiopia but also processed and vacuum packed there."
"Real money in coffee is only made when it´s processed….by controlling the supply chain up to the final product, it should be possible to see 60% more in turnover” (at the end of the article)." (source)"
"The coffee is roasted at gentle temperatures for at least 22 minutes in the drum roaster. Only sun-dried beans are used [...]. They taste spicier and contain little acidity." (Source)
