We stand for transparency

Our transparency vision

Icon: Solino added value

Added value

We would like to be able to leave significantly more added value in Ethiopia by processing the entire product locally.

Icon: Solino commerce and jobs

Jobs

We want to create qualified and thus better-paid jobs locally. This is the only way the country can really develop.

Icon: Solino coffee enjoyment

Coffee enjoyment

We can produce high quality goods directly in Ethiopia. And so we can offer you a first-class coffee experience!

Transparency vs. seals

So why not just use seals? We deliberately do not use seals because we do not believe that they provide real transparency. It does not help Ethiopians if we pay high fees to (mostly western) consultants.

To show the effectiveness of our approach, we want to give you real facts. How much do production employees earn more than the Ethiopian average? How much added value remains in Ethiopia through further processing? Where does your coffee come from?

Supply chain

Cooperative

We buy the raw beans from a forest cooperative at prices above the market average.

Roasting

Solino coffee is roasted in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.

Djibuiti

After roasting, our coffee beans go to the port of Djibuiti for shipment.

Hamburg

In Hamburg, the journey of our coffee ends and is ready to be delivered.
