Solino Team

We need skilled jobs such as roasting masters, packaging experts, technicians and printers to process our coffee in Ethiopia. This allows us to pay our employees double to 10 times the average wage. The average salary of coffee farmers in Ethiopia is 1200 Birr (about 30 Euros). In comparison, qualified employees earn 2000 to 10000 Birr per month (approx. 60 to 300 Euro). Compared to German standards, this may not be much, but in Ethiopia it can feed a whole family.
