Ethiopia, Daye Bensa, Mirado


The Mirado Washing Station is owned and managed by the inspirational Dukamo family business, Daye Bensa.  The Mirado station is located in Southern Ethiopia's infamous Sidamo region and serves more than a thousand local coffee growers.  With most contributing members producing coffee on 2 hectares or less the scale of their output is truly a collaborative effort.  Coffee is hand-picked on each farm before delivering their cherries to the washing station for sorting and processing.

Environmental Impact

All our packaging should be recycled in domestic curbside recycling or at your local recycling centre.

We are almost a waste free business & constantly track and measure our waste and impact on the environment.


We have specifically sourced our packing so it can be recycled.

Our coffee bags are made from LDPE - 4, which can be taken anywhere that recycles plastic bags (supermarkets & council sites). Everything else we use can be put in domestic curbside recycling.


We roast once a week in batches to reduce our carbon footprint. So your coffee might not arrive the next day.

Direct Trade

Whilst Fairtrade (TM) is a great, we believe directly buying from producers means all the money goes to straight to them.
